Path by the Rio Grande
6x8in oil on canvas board $100.
When I first saw the Rio Grande River I was still living in England. It was in a movie with cowboys driving cattle across it. I can still remember clearly how the stunning beauty of the surrounding landscape and the surging water caught my imagination. It never, ever, occurred to me that one day I would be living near this great river. It is the lifeblood of the farms in this area and it cuts a path of green through the desert of southern New Mexico. I love to walk along its banks and sometimes there are clear spaces where you can see the river and other times are like this pathway.
