Have painted this old church many times before and many more times to come! This piece found a new home right here in Taos during the Studio Tour...I also was commissioned to paint "La Copilla", another old church just south of here.
I painted this painting from the visitor's center just across the gorge bridge..early morning. There were a bunch of big horned sheep there as well checking me (and my painting friends) out. Took photos of them and will some day do another painting and paint them in!
Another typical scene in the winter, especially when driving near a river...I have a lot of fun painting snow scenes but when you can add the "splash" of red willows? Well, it's almost better than Christmas!
