Great News! In anticipation of a new venue for my print images from my fairly large body of work (in other words a diary of the last 48 years of my life in painting northern New Mexico) - I am offering the existing inventory of my Studio Edition Prints at very affordable closeout prices. There are only one or two available for each image. The major portion of this catalog is now posted to my Online Gallery/Store . You are invited to visit and enjoy!

TAOS EVENING LIGHT - 16"x20" Work in Progress - Overall Glazes. This is a somewhat new step for me, especially for late afternoon or evening paintings. I used my painting medium to thin Payne's Grey and Dioxazine Purple and glazed over my underpainting (make sure the underpainting is thoroughly dry). As you can see the red and pink early evening tones come through!
