Abiquiu, NM

Among the Ruins, oil on board 8" x 6" + Frame  

Behind a pile of rubble, a space abandoned and forgotten, I noticed an adobe structure. As I stood observing, the colors of the adobe walls seemed to absorb the colors of life around them;  instead of blending into the dried, mud landscape the structure became vibrantly part of it.

Desert Sounds

Desert Sounds, oil on paper, 10.5" x 7.25"

Sometimes the desert heat is so hazy and the feeling is so dry that it seems as though air has stopped flowing ...and then, small sounds become perceptible and your consciousness knows that the surroundings are full of life ad the stillness is just an illusion.
