new mexico report
I'm home this evening after 21 hours of driving (in two days)...it's a long haul but I love going to New Mexico. Even when we spend as much time in the car as we do out there--which was the case this time.
Besides having Thanksgiving with relatives and our two sons (who live in Albuquerque) we also hiked around the volcanoes in Petroglyph National Monument, visited with friends, including painter Diane McGregor
, and made it twice to the gallery district on Canyon Road in Santa Fe. The first time was to drop off five paintings at Darnell Fine Art
, and the second, a few days later, was to see several of them hung on the wall and to visit a few galleries with my ten year old niece and my sister in law.
Above is one of the paintings I delivered, Nightfall
(60"x36" oil on panel) hung at Darnell beside a small work from my July show, Fragments
Below is a photo I took at the volcanoes near Albuquerque, a beautiful open, windswept area of interesting rock formations, upon which ancient petroglyphs can be found.
