12"x12", studio painting, layered oils
I painted this from several photos I took of a road trip along the Turquoise Trail between Albuquerque and Santa Fe. It is a lovely drive through the mountains and rolling vistas into the beautiful northern New Mexico landscape. I have a personal attachment to the views near Santa Fe because that is where I grew up. Growing up in Santa Fe I was surrounded by art, culture and the beautiful southwest landscape that has inspired so many artists. I feel so lucky to have grown up in that environment.
