Tesuque, New Mexico - Day 12

Tesuque, New Mexico

6x8in oil on canvas panel $125. SOLD

Artist Note.

Painted this while the area 
is fresh in my mind from my trip 
this weekend.
Painted quickly using
  only the palette knife.

This consists of such simple 
shapes 
but I love the color of the dirt
with the rich green of the pinons.

Busy time catching up
with everything. I will be heading 
round everyone's work soon.
