Pecos River Overlook

The Pecos River, a breath of life running through New Mexico on the drive into Roswell. Just a quick stop but the life giving water fills the landscape with color as it winds through the parched land.

Somewhere in New Mexico

pastel on paper 6 x 6 inches
Somewhere in New Mexico, the long drive, the amazing scenery, heading north from Santa Fe. It's easy to get lost in the subtle colors here. The sky goes on forever with the shadow of the mountains as a baseline.

Happy Hens

pastel on paper 6 x 6 inches
set up in online auction through dailypaintworks
I had the honor of spending a beautiful but chilly morning at the Paca D'Lites Ranch with chickens, alpacas, phoebe the pyrenees, ducks, rabbits and more. The alpacas were adorable with such personality and I can't wait to paint them all. One reminded me a little of Prince but I can't remember her name. Just chickens for today. These are happy lucky chickens that roam free and only lay eggs if they feel like it, pronouncing their victory for all who will listen.
