While in New Mexico there is no escaping the beautiful turquoise waters as you pass through the canyon areas. Driving north from Santa Fe to Abiquiu, the cliffs rise up for what seems forever with their red shear sides reflecting into the waters below. It is truly a grand sight to see and you feel so blessed to be there, even if it is for just a few days. Recently I joined the the Encaustic Art Institute to take part in the oil and wax association activities and to show at their gallery in Cerrillos, New Mexico. The grandeur and happenings in New Mexico has made for, "A Painting Day".
