It's so cold in New Mexico right now that I wanted to paint something with a warm feel to it. I want to be sitting in that little spot of warm orange beneath the pinon trees! This is taken from a photo I took while on a plein air paintout in Placitas. If you've never been to Placitas, it's pretty cool. It's a little north of the Sandia Mountains, I'm not sure if it's part of that mountain or not. It's just a quaint little village. In fact, they have an incredible art fair there every year. Check it out online.
