That is why I am excited to be included in a new blog started by a wonderful artist Dee Sanchez. The blog is called 'Let's Paint New Mexico' and it will showcase the work of many great artists with ties to New Mexico. There will be a monthly challenge to the artists and their resulting paintings will be posted on the blog. This month tthe first challenge was to paint from a photo of the view of the Rio Chama on the way to Abiqui. I remember stopping here with my friends Jayne and Holly on one of our great adventure trips.

About this painting: This is an 8x10 pastel on Uart paper. I began with a gouache underpainting using warm oranges and reds. I wanted this desert color to peek through my pastels. Here is the underpainting.
