#15-4 "NEAR PILAR"

"NEAR PILAR"
8x10"
oil on panel
$99

My mouth is watering as I write - wanting so bad to take a day trip up north.

I know there's probably snow, but I still want to go! 

This is a scene from Pilar, New Mexico, which is a tiny little spot you pass
on the way to Taos, New Mexico.

There are a few shops, artsy places, and a river rafting company.
You turn left off the highway, the mountains meet you, and the river runs right by your side.
There are turn-offs to stop and daydream or camp if you'd like.

Across the river, you can also spot sleepy little houses in the village of Pilar.

I never get tired of looking at this little spot and hope you can visit someday too.

Your road trips sounds like so much fun. I would love to meet Goldie. I know your route but haven't stopped at the Tesuque Market. Next time!

I love how you take a rather brown landscape and add so much joyful color. Your paintings sing.

Thanks Carol - Goldie is a hoot. The trips are usually about exploring unknown roads, taking pics, eating good food, and finding something unusual on our journey. Miss that girl.
