Virtual Paintout‚ĶJuly 2015 (Santa Fe, NM)


“Santa Fe Adobe”

Santa Fe, New Mexico

9″ x 12″ (Oil on Canvas Board)

For the month of July, 2015 I visited a region I’m very fond of, Santa Fe, NM. I painted a very familiar Adobe Home on Canyon Road and Delgado Street. This old door way (portal) must have been here forever. I can’t walk up Canyon Road without being amazed by it.¬† Check out the other ART for this month’s Virtural Paintout at
