Oil on Canvas

People who have seen this painting say it screams "New Mexico." We don't have them here in Alto, but they are not too far away and they are plentiful.

Sierra Blanca from Rancho Ruidoso
Oil on Linen Canvas
This is another painting of another side of Sierra Blanca. This one is 24X12, oil on linen canvas. I took this photograph of the mountain and the fields from the square corner at Rancho Ruidoso. The horses are from a photograph by Lawrence Splitter and the photograph of the mountain I took with my iPhone in the middle of the day. I most appreciate my husband walking through while I was painting and saying things like, "The mountains aren't that steep." and "You should be able to see the horses legs a little better." It's a much better painting because of him.
