Day 2 - The Rio Grande gorge

"Before the Storm" 11x14 oil $585

On the morning of my second day at the PAPNM paint out I painted the Rio Grande Gorge overlook. Painting the distance was a challenge, and the early morning shadows in the gorge were a gorgeous pink and violet.
A few hours after I left this scene and headed into Taos a huge storm moved through this area with hail and significant lightning. I was happy to enjoy the storm from the comfort of my covered courtyard.
