Ranchos de Taos, Georgia O’Keeffe, Judy Chicago

October 28, 2010

The Catholic Church at Ranchos de Taos is the oldest “in-use” Catholic church in the US. It has also… served as an inspiration for many artists – Georgia O’Keeffe and myself among them. I drove my ’60 Willys wagon there back in the 80’s and spent quite a bit of time around Taos. I had the pleasure of meeting and dining out with the great artist, Judy Chicago. Even took a side trip down to Albuquerque to look in on the silk screen studuio producing her “Birth Project” serigaphs. This image is one of several I created while on that trip. It is a serigraph done in a limited edition.

Collaboration Art

October 26, 2010

Latest painting a collaboration with Anastasia Nelson, “Tehama Cowgirl” was inspired by a local cow and the Dairyville Orchard Festival. Collaborative work is always interesting. In this case we passed both the original drawing and the painting back’n’forth til we were satisified with the final piece. This is one of a suite of six pieces.
