When we visited Ghost Ranch during our recent trip to New Mexico, I completed my first painting and had a few minutes to spare before leaving this beautiful place. I quickly sketched another mountain scene visible from a quarter turn from The Pedernal, and quickly blocked in colors. I wanted to completely abstract what I saw, which was so magnificent that I couldn't imagine tackling it realistically. This is such a style departure for me, but I really enjoyed it---it was very liberating. I am sure there are more abstractions in my future. I would love to know what you think!
Here is the photo I took of the visita.
