Rio Chama's Journey

8 x 8 inches pastel on paper unframed
"In rivers, the water that you touch is the last of what has passed and the first of that which comes; so with present time."
Leonardo da Vinci
The colors of the landscape seem to jump to life as the Chama River journeys through the desert. it courses through the thirsty landscape, sharing its life's force along the way. I love it here, just north of Abiquiu, New Mexico. The colors are subtle but become more intense to me as I spend more and more time in the area.

Vinalhaven Drive

I consider this more of an illustration than my usual paintings. I see a story in the works. I love these little houses that all line up with the wonderful light and shadow. I have more paintings planned from this image. This is a view that I plan to abstract more so that it becomes even more about the light and shadow.
