Rio en Medio
When I lived in New Mexico, I walked up the canyon of this 'river' often. Though I`m not a nostalgic person, I wanted to see it again on my recent visit. By any measure it`s a modest little creek but what a moment to see it! The new greens of Spring were well underway, the leaves that fell last fall carpeted the ground in gold and further upstream, it began to snow! It was spellbinding with it`s seasonal contradictions. The mood was so vivid, I think I have several paintings to get out as soon as possible.
