past this spot on a field trip last month and it has all changed! The
original of this painting was completed quite some time ago -- what I
know about the High Road after living and painting here for 45 years,
sooner or later everything changes.
Remembering: Many years ago my friend Susie
Romero, daughter of Truchas Mayordomo Cosme Romero, took me to the loft
of this old church (La Nuestra Senora del Rosario) to show me the lists
of Truchas men who had served in war. It was an unforgettable
homage. Today I would also like to remember my uncle Major Roy Knoll
who served in Burma and Calcutta during WWII, uncle Alvin Hermesdorf who
fought in the Battle of the Bulge....and all those who have served this
country in uniform. Thank you.
WINTER FIELDS AT LAS TRAMPAS, Archival Giclee now available at my Online Gallery/Store.From
my kitchen window I can see it is snowing in the Pecos this afternoon -
heavy winds and rain in Taos. This image is of the field on the left
side of the highway just past the San Jose de Gracia Church as you are
going toward Truchas. I've always loved this field at any time of the
year, but especially in winter! Almost time to hibernate!
