Ghost Ranch Mesa

 

 

 

Ghost Ranch Mesa

 

I was lucky enough to take a retablo painting class at Ghost Ranch, just outside of Abiquiu, New Mexico. Yes, that's where Georgia O'Keefe used to paint, but she always did the big, blue mountain. I, myself, couldn't take my eyes off this mesa, which at sunset, looked as though it was lit from within. Twice, in the week I was there, I saw a double rainbow over the mesa, at sunset. Now, if I painted that, I would look like Thomas Kincaid! Unlike Kincaid, my philosophy is that some things are best left to nature. Thus, no rainbow in this piece.
