Adobe at Rio Hondo

Adobe at Rio Hondo, along with Shadows on the Pond, was juried into the Holiday Show at Got Art Gallery in Lee's Summit, Mo. on 3rd Street. These two pieces will be on display thru December 21st. The artist reception is scheduled for December 4th from 6-9pm. (wine and refreshments provided by Gallery)
This piece was created on site in Taos, New Mexico during a plein aire trip in April, 2009. This building and others at this location are over 100 years old. They are on a ranch that remains in the original family. Though the ranch is no longer a working one, the family has retained the buildings instead of tearing them down to preserve their history. Artists still flock to the ranch to paint the many structures still standing on the property. It was great to paint a piece of New Mexico's history. The original owners had come from Mexico in the days before New Mexico was a state, to establish a new life in the new country.
Hope you will stop by and enjoy all the wonderful art that is on display. Great place to get a unique Christmas gift.
See you there,
