One of my favorite places to visit is New Mexico. I love the landscape, the cities, the food, the architecture . . . the big skies.

I’ve been there three times so far. The most memorable was a trip with my sister. We stayed in a simple yet beautiful casita in Abiquiu, the home of Georgia O’Keeffe. We had a 360 degree view of the surrounding landscape which included the Padernal that O’Keeffe made famous and has become a favorite spot to paint for many artists.

 

 


The plan was that I’d focus on painting. There was so much to see and do and although I did paint for a couple of days, most of the painting was done from photos when I got home.
