"MOON WATCHERS AT CHIMAYO"
This is painting #2 of "Tribute to a Beautiful Earth," the series we're working on with www.dailypainters.com. I have always felt a deep connection to my Canyon Women. They are simple, I usually paint them in threes, and they are always watching, working, or nurturing. I feel like these women have probably done a good day's work, now they are resting and supporting each other - maybe they have come to the church because it's near their home and when they saw the full moon coming up over the mountains, they just stopped to breathe a moment and take it all in. I know, in my own life, I need to pause every once in a while, stop what I'm doing, and just enjoy our beautiful earth and everything she gives us.
