I just returned from a wonderful painting trip in, and around, Santa Fe, New Mexico.
While Nancy was in an intensive one week alternative photography workshop with the internationally renowned Christopher James, I spent my days on the ‘High Road to Taos’ [Cundiyo, Cordova and Truchas] and the ‘Turquoise Trail’ [Madrid and Cerrillos] painting on 18″ x 24″ canvas and masonite boards. It is not all that easy to paint outdoors when the temperature reaches 103 F; the relative humidity is 4%; there are no clouds [except for the smoke generated from raging canyon fires] and you back over your easel to move your car to accommodate a three axle SUV!
Although it’s not easy, it is spectacularly rewarding.
These are 6 of the fruits of my adversity.
