For Georgia

Ranchos de Taos Church
8 x 10
Oil on Canvas
Here's another New Mexico painting that I've been working on, the St. Francis church at Ranchos de Taos. This of course is a view of the back of the church made famous by Georgia Okeeffe. It is a view that I've photographed and sketched many times. I usually do not enjoy painting buildings, but the adobe buildings of New Mexico with their warm colors and organic shapes are the exception for me. I'm hoping for warmer weather so I can resume painting outdoors  but for now I stilll have plenty of paintings that I want to finish.
