Río Grande Medley

The Río Grande is a river that flows approximately 1900 miles from south central Colorado in the United States to the Gulf of Mexico. Along its way through New Mexico, it passes Embudo Station, which is one of my favorite painting spots. The town of Embudo was founded in 1881 when the Denver and Rio Grande Western Railroad opened a station there.

This studio painting is based on field studies done on a beautiful day when the cottonwood trees and foreground grasses were putting on a spectacular autumn display.


The original painting was sold to a private collector.
