Blustering and Blossoms
The wind is blowing and the dust is being stirred up. I am just so happy that Spring is here. The buds from a couple weeks ago are bursting open with tiny colorful flowers. I am always a bit taken back by the willows and their long whips of green buds. They seem to sprout […]
This is just a quick look at a truck that really wowed me while it sat in a parking lot during sunset.
Taos Valley Overlook
Took a nice little hike alone a few weeks ago. The sun was out and Spring was on the way. It snowed but the sun burnt through the stuff in a few hours. It was a good day to get out and enjoy … just enjoy. Sorry about the narration on the video. One of […]
I finally made it to the Taos Society of Portrait Artists group slightly early. I was actually able to set up my stuff before the crowd arrived. Unfortunately, I changed my mind about where I wanted to be and had to find a place next to the glaring front door and a bit back. It […]
Pilar in winter
It was a cold and grey day in Pilar but the yellow grasses and red willow branches brightened up the landscape.
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.
Sun One Day & Snow the Next
I borrowed a nice Nikon camera for the weekend. This is what I came up with after a few moments of play.
New Mexico was blessed with a great conference that visited this September. Founded in the Netherlands in 1990, ISEA International (formerly Inter-Society for the Electronic Arts) is an international non-profit organization fostering interdisciplinary academic discourse and exchange among culturally diverse organizations and individuals working with art, science and technology. They held the symposium in Albuquerque, […]
Last year I noticed that a group photo of the artists of Taos was being done. Over the radio, they announced that Lenny Foster would be taking photos at a big party held at the KTAO Solar Center. They were putting quite a bit of effort in to the event. It is a nice opportunity […]
Pilar in Fall
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
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
