On the Road to Chimayo
Field Notes: The weather played a major role in this painting. Twice I was interrupted by a hard rain and had to quickly pack everything back in the car and wait for it to pass. Just as I finished it, a huge gust of wind blew the painting off the easel and I madly gave chase as it rolled along the ground like a tumbleweed, grabbing it just before it went off the cliff! Somehow it survived, none the worse for wear.
