Rio en Medio 5

This is the New Mexico painting I couldn`t finish before I left for Whiskeytown. Despite Chuck Close`s famous snarky comment about only amateurs needing inspiration, I think it`s important. A two hour walk in late spring up a tiny canyon in the mountains north of Santa Fe gave me mental images that will last a lifetime. That was a gift.

The inspiration has made the difference. This piece once again brings together all your trademarks in deft composition, lush abstraction, color, light. I'm always drawn to how you paint water.
