Snow in Southern New Mexico

Snow in Southern New Mexico

5x7in oil on canvas board    90.

Here in Las Cruces, New Mexico, we are all used to Santa Fe, Taos, and Albuquerque getting the snow and colder weather so this is always a surprise when it happens.
I painted this when the sunrise was casting a peach glow and the clouds hung below the tops of the mountains. Quite breathtaking.
Quick decision or or paint... and paint won. Sadly, now I do not have a photo of this, but it will be in my memory forever.

Only two days later and this is how it looks now. The sun melted the ground snow quickly, but you can see still see some snow on the railings of my deck.
