#140 "A BIT OF BLUE"

oil on cradled board

The Rio Grande Gorge near Taos in the fall.
This is an unusual color scheme for me.
I had trouble getting an accurate photograph
on the color - I must have shot it twenty times.

The background mountains were in the shadows a bit,
The blue of the gorge was a gorgeous blue.
And the landscape was passed in a blur
while we were driving, so the chamisa and sage
all looked like one solid color.
I had to use some imagination.

I can pass by this beautiful landmark
a thousand times and it never looks the same. 

For purchase information,
