Framing artwork is pretty important. It can set off a painting and really help it command attention. Framing artwork in a way that supports the subject and intention of the artist.

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 […]

Posted by Enrico Trujillo on March 17, 2013 in Photographs, video |

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 […]

It was an interesting day for me. As I was doing my usual searching and reading along the internet I came across a few sites and ideas that helped me to cristalize a few questions I have had about making art in Taos. A very good friend with a native background offered “I hope you […]

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.

Sketching on the iPad

Spent a few minutes sketching while having tea this morning. I found a group of photos I had gathered and decided to poke something out on my iPad. Across from me was a group of older ladies laughing about their day. It was quiet and there wasn’t really anyone else in the space except for […]

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 […]
