Bosque del Apache Refuge

Posted by Picasa
Sunset at the Bosque, NM.

8x6in oil on canvas 100


New Mexico unfortunately has some fires burning in several places and the sunsets have been outstanding because of the smoke.
The Bosque del Apache Refuge is a wondrous place where tens of thousands of birds gather for the winter. It is between Las Cruces, where I live, and Albuquerque/Santa Fe. Artists come from all over the country to paint the area. Unfortunately, because of the extreme fire hazard, most of the Bosque was closed but I was able to find a new spot just in time to capture a fast sunset.
