My painting “Let it Snow” is an invitation to enjoy the amazing softness, sparkle and fun of falling snow.
I love the meandering Rio Grande and the beauty of the surrounding landscape capturing it’s head waters in the mountains near Creede, Colorado. The spectacular fall colors of the Colorado mountains glow in the early morning light of day. A scene that cries out to be painted.
This scene can still be found in the mountains of New Mexico. I used the local color of the adobe walls and tin roofs with a separate painting behind it in sepia tones to emphasize the village’s heritage of worship.
