Inspired by the gorgeous aspen groves located in the Sangre de Cristo Mountain rising above Santa Fe, I wanted to capture this magical morning light casting its warm glow on the forest. Peaceful and mysterious, the sun’s rays peek through the knotted trunks causing the landscape to dance with light and awaken with autumn’s kaleidoscope of colors. Loaded with texture and layers and layers of paint, the forest shimmers with hope and discovery for the new day.
This Saturday I will be demonstrating at my Santa Fe Gallery, Marigold Arts, from 10am – 2pm. If you are in the area, stop by, say hello and watch my process. I look forward to seeing you tomorrow!
