I started thee two paintings in Santa Fe and finished them when I got back to San Diego. Sometimes when I do that I lose the thread of what I was intending along the way and it takes a while to get it back. But these were so clear to me what I wanted to do and how I wanted to layer the colors that they practically flew out of me!
The hard part is coming up with a name. The Running Rio Grande, Watching the River Flow, Floating the River, Riding the River, Heading Back to Santa Fe, the Road to Taos, so many ideas but none seem exactly right. If you can think of any good ones let me know!
