The River and The Rock

This painting, based on field studies done in eastern New Mexico, depicts a section of the Pecos River as it flows to the Río Grande. It’s a popular spot for fly fishermen, as well as for artists.

By design, this very large painting juxtaposes the permanence of the gigantic boulder against the river’s constant change. Over time, the rock is sure to yield to the river.
