Walt Gonske

Posted by Enrico Trujillo on October 22, 2017 in Journal, Landscape, Paintings |

I was back out at the Taos Art Musuem at the Fechin House. The new show there is work by Walt Gonske. He was born in 1942 and is originally from the east coast. After a career as an illustrator, he moved to Taos in 1972. I don’t really have a lot to say about […]

Taos Mountain Tiny

Spent the day on the verge of a cold. Not quite sure where it is going. Not getting bad. Not getting better. Have been stuck in the house all day. Went outside to paint a little. Just needed to feel like I did something today.   I wanted to focus on the sky because it […]

It was a cold and grey day in Pilar but the yellow grasses and red willow branches brightened up the landscape.

Forest Road

Posted by Enrico Trujillo on March 4, 2013 in Journal, Landscape, Paintings, Sketches |

This week I wanted to start making time to paint. I don’t usually schedule a time to sit down and make an image. This has probably been a mistake. This image is from a trip to Abiquiú. The view is pretty familiar to people who have driven down Forest Road 151.

Pilar in Fall

Posted by Enrico Trujillo on October 24, 2012 in Landscape, Photographs |

Pilar (previously known as Cieneguilla) is a small town on the edge of Taos County. It is located along the rift that directs the Rio Grande through northern New Mexico. The name comes from the Spanish word “ciénaga” which means “marsh” or “marshy place”. The swampy ground is caused by several streams running across a […]

Near Pilar Riverside

Posted by Enrico Trujillo on October 9, 2012 in Journal, Landscape, Paintings |

I was born in Embudo. This is a view of the Rio Grande somewhere between Embudo and Pilar. The trees are changing a bit and the water is a bit more green because the flow of the river is slower. In the spring the water is brown with little white caps where rocks break the […]

Day two of the daily painting project. It was a beautiful day. I actually was able to sit out in the sun and enjoy the warmth. Another view of some beautiful aspens. 5″x7″ oil on canvas board

To the Headwaters of the Rio Grande

Posted by Enrico Trujillo on October 7, 2012 in Journal, Landscape, Photographs |

Will and I took a nice trip up to southern Colorado to see some of the changing colors of the “foliage” along the roadside. We set off in the afternoon and caught some beautiful views as we passed through Tierra Amarilla as the sun was setting. We had to stop the car several times in […]

Tierra Amarilla Aspens

Posted by Enrico Trujillo on October 6, 2012 in Journal, Landscape, Paintings |

I am starting a daily painting project. Hopefully I can find time to create a small painting for each day for the next couple of months. It is an attempt to develop a habit of painting. While I create designs and work with images most days, painting is not a daily event. Now that I […]

Gallegos Peak

Posted by Enrico Trujillo on September 19, 2012 in Image Stream, Journal, Landscape, Photographs, Uncategorized |

A random afternoon jaunt to the mountains turns into a long mysterious drive down forest roads and through a stream because of a strange desire to see what is at the end of the road. It is Sunday afternoon and the colors in the mountains are about to change. The nights have been cool and […]

Mesa Verde National Park

Posted by Enrico Trujillo on September 19, 2012 in Image Stream, Journal, Landscape, Photographs |

I have wanted to visit Mesa Verde for several years. My grandfather, George Gibson, painted a really amazing view of Cliff Palace. I remember noticing the beautiful arching rock formations and the details of the rooms and windows. At the time, the image and place really didn’t have a name in my mind. I think […]

Wheeler Peak

What do you do when you have a long Labor Day weekend? I want a real trip, someplace fresh and exciting. I want a pool and a bit of a tan on my shoulders. The last few days of summer should be treated like summer, damn it. Entering fall with pale legs and an albino […]
