TAKING THE HIGH ROAD TO TAOS -- A new book from my Taos Studio.  From the dust jacket: "In 1967 Donna Clair began a new, adventurous chapter in her life by leaving Chicago and moving across the country to Santa Fe,New Mexico. Taking out her easel,  paints and brushes, she established herself as a well-recognized southwestern contemporary painter. Leaving the Santa Fe social scene in 1982, she moved to a 20 acre horse ranch on Llano Quemado - a "suburb" of the small Hispanic village of Truchas, New Mexico. These images chronicle her journey."

It has taken 45 years of living in New Mexico and a whole bunch of new technology for me to put this new project together!   This book measures 9"x11" and has 62 pages of text and illustrations of paintings.  What is so amazing to me is the fact that the colors of the reproductions are absolutely true to the original work! The book is hand-signed and can be personalized.  $100.00, plus $12.00 shipping. Please allow ten days for delivery.  To order call (575)758-7454 - Mastercard, Visa, American Express through my studio.  ENJOY! DC
