"On the Mesa" oil 11x14
Usually I experience northern New Mexico during the autumn months; for example, the painting above was painted in October at Ghost Ranch. However, this year, for the first time, the High Desert Painters will visit Taos in May during the Spring season. It will be very exciting to see the difference in the landscape, colors, and light! The rivers will be swollen and the foliage will be new and bright pastels instead of golden autumnal. I expect the color change will be a challenge for me and I will need to remember to adjust my palette accordingly.
