The New Mexico Art League’s latest exhibition features representations – in a variety of media – of the fabulous skies in this state. All three of my submissions were accepted (a first) and the one above was taken right up the street from my house. It’s titled Eldorado, the name of our little unincorporated community about 12 mile southeast of Santa Fe.
Another image, A Proper Perspective, is a variation on a theme. You’ve seen it before in black and white. Here is the color version.
The third image, Virgas, may also be in a gallery on this site, called there Into the Rain. It was taken in NE New Mexico, near a town called Roy, where the land begins to become plains. I changed the title because on closer examination I thought the rain wasn’t actually reaching the ground, hence virgas. What do you think?
