This painting was started in plein aire at Taos, New Mexico and completed live during the CF Fundraiser at Union Station last Thursday.
This part of the Rio Grande river runs through Rio Hondo. About a mile from this site the rapids become very intense. While I was painting, I could hear the screams of the rafters as they ran the rapids downstream from me. I personally prefer my rabids in my paintings than in a raft, but to each their own.
