Our Lady of the Desert Sun

~ New Mexico Icon Painting ~

In October while out in Albuquerque, New Mexico -

I had the pleasure of dropping into Polly Jackson's painting class at the University of New Mexico and did this painting.

I was enchanted with the Land of Enchantment...colors, sky, pinon pine, mountains, air, water...
and the rich religious culture. It all worked it's magic...just looking at this painting draws me back.
