Back Road to Hatch
Back Road to Hatch, NM.
6x9in oil on gallery wrap canvas 125.
This is a painting I did in the Fall. It is a lovely spot on the way from Las Cruces to Hatch. The Chili capitol of New Mexico. The best chilies in the world are grown there...ask anyone from New Mexico. The red plant on the bank may have been rogue, red chili plants, but not sure.
Local people may not recognize the spot as I chose not to paint the rusting car, washing machine and other assorted unwanted items.
I did paint today but ended up washing every attempt off.
Not always easy being an artist.
I am a painter living in Las Cruces, NM. After many years as an illustrator I turned to fine art to develop my own artistic voice. I currently teach talented and enthusiastic artists in oil, acrylic and egg tempera painting. I am also a member of the Artist Guild of Southern New Mexico.
