The Gorge

Acrylic on paper, 18"x24" The gorge in Taos is something to behold the first time. It looks like a giant crack in the earth as it is a deep, narrow canyon through which the Rio Grande river runs. It cuts right through the mesa that runs west of Taos, and there are only two roads [...]

Mountain Meadow

Acrylic on paper, 14"x20" I went with my girlfriend one summer day high up into the mountains near Truchas, New Mexico. We hiked up a trail for several hours, and came upon a mountain meadow bursting with yellow wildflowers. We brought a picnic, sat right down in the middle of all those flowers and drifted [...]

Ojo Meadow

Acrylic on paper, 14"x20" There was a beautiful, lush meadow near the Ojo Caliente hot springs with a nice trail that went for a long ways along the creek. Sometimes when the autumn days were a little crisp, I would take a break from soaking and go for a walk in the Ojo meadow. It [...]

Full Moon Cows

Acrylic on paper, 18"x24" When I lived in Taos, New Mexico, I loved to bundle up and go for winter walks under the full moon. I lived in a great, old hacienda that was walking distance to wide open fields and trails. I captured this scene of the full moon cows one night on one [...]

Evening In The Wash

Acrylic on paper, 14"x20" One of the benefits of living in Santa Fe is all the sandy arroyos throughout town that make great, natural walking trails for you and the dog. They are also called washes because when it rains, they fill up with water and wash everything in them away. I had a wonderful [...]

Rain Over Pedernal

Acrylic on paper, 12"x16" There is a long, narrow mesa near Abiquiu in New Mexico called Cerro Pedernal, known to the locals as just Pedernal. I believe there is a particular type of rock common there that is collected by the native people for some use. But what makes Pedernal especially sacred to me is [...]

Storm At The Ranch

Acrylic on paper, 12"x16" A beautiful, blue rain shower over a ranch I loved so much. I use to walk there a lot in the summer, and you never knew when there would be a storm at the ranch. Sometimes the clouds would build, and look like they were heading straight for you. But then [...]

Church In The Hills

Acrylic on paper, 12"x16" I loved walking in the sandy arroyos in autumn when all the cottonwoods were glowing with gold, the chamisa was turning yellow, the purple wildflowers were bountiful and the mountains were showing their first snow. One crisp, fall day I got a great view of a church in the hills surrounded [...]

Summer In The Creek

Acrylic on paper, 12"x16" The Galisteo creek runs for about eighty miles, I think. Summer in the creek was the best because there was usually still some water so you could cool off if you were walking in and along the creek. There were these wide, sandy banks where you could stop and hang out, [...]

The Chimneys

Acrylic on paper, 12"x16" I suppose Georgia O'Keeffe made the Chimneys famous as she painted them often. It's hard not to paint them as they suddenly rise out of nowhere, and add a new element to the landscape. When the sunlight hits them just before sunset, I have seen them look like they were really [...]
