“Old & New”


30” x 40”


  Early spring blossoms in contrast  to a old adobe which had recently been torn down. As well as a giant cottonwood tree. Often times I record these old adobe homes which disappear with  all their charm and native spirit. Only to be replaced with doublewide prefab homes. They are so personalized, so different, each and every one. They express the character of those that built them in another era. One of independence and self reliance, built from the earth around them. The play of light and condition of the weather’s effect on them, give me the artistic inspiration to try to capture the mood and personality of this lovely New Mexican way of life, Which is fast disappearing, melting back into the earth turning into history before my artists eye.
