It's no secret that landscape painters all over the world fall in love with New Mexico. Even though I was only in New Mexico for a brief trip last week, I'm already missing the landscape and hoping I can return soon to take more photos.
The mornings in New Mexico are especially wonderful when it's sunny and you've got a spicy Mexican hot chocolate in hand!
This landscape painting was painted back in the studio from my photo references which I took just north of Taos. It's the kind of landscape that I find energizing and peaceful at the same time.
