Snow Dancer in Taos

Snow Dancer in Taos

After a winter weekend in Taos, NM, I was struck by the contrast of the red dirt of the region, peeking through the snow. Like much of the scenery in New Mexico, the juxtaposition of colors and elements of landscape were both foreign and fascinating to me. Shortly after my weekend, I saw a Brazilian dance troupe perform at the South Broadway Cultural Center in Albuquerque. That night, I came home and PAINTED. One of the best things about painting is how different sights and emotions can ferment inside you for awhile and then suddenly explode out. I am often as suprised by what I see on my canvas as a stranger is.
