Chama River Near Abiquiu, New Mexico, 2006
Oil on canvas laid to panel
9 x 12 in
A lovely landscape oil painting on a wooden board. This is a small but highly detailed piece. It is most certainly in the category of "photos do not do this work justice". The sweeping river and rocky cliff sides entrance the eyes and lead you through the whole of the piece. It is most wonderful to see this work in person. It brings the sense of falling through a portal. Or peeking through one into a different part of the world. Signed and dated by the artist on the lower right.
