Santa Fe ( EB 124) is an 8x10 oil on masonite prepared with PVA sizing to render the board archival, followed by 3 applications of gesso.
This painting was inspired by my painting trip with friends to Santa Fe, New Mexico. The light is so lovely in this part of our great country. Especially, I was drawn to the light turquoise foliage against the distant salmon cliffs and gorgeous sky color. I thought the composition of the scene made for a nice painting.
