"Art touches the soul...art is communication...it reaches out from the canvas and passes through the eyes of the viewer right into his heart where it can leave an imprint of beauty that can make the spirit sing."

RIO GRANDE GORGE will be Published in 2012


“Rio Grande Gorge” is a painting inspired by a trip my husband and I
took one summer to the magnificent northern New Mexico area.

In this painting I tried to capture the essence of nature's own
architecture in the repetition of the beautiful strata of sedimentary
rocks. The river surges far below cutting through the ancient earth.
Petroglyphs dot the ruins. A beautiful New Mexico morning sky
stains the earth in the shades of terra cotta, raspberry and gold.

As an artist I wanted to create a painting which would show nature's
magnificence. The “Land of Enchantment” (New Mexico) has a
spirit all it's own...I wished to portray the emotion I felt as I
gazed over the rim into the deep canyon below...and then up to the
horizon, filled with sunshine, seemingly going on forever, hopefully
providing the sensation that the viewer could almost touch the sky.
