Rolling Water

Moving water has a mysterious quality, particularly in the Southwest, where water is often in short supply. That’s why rivers here are special.

I’ve spent many an hour painting beside rivers and streams and studying their patterns, which is abstraction in motion. This painting portrays a section of the Pecos in New Mexico, a river I’ve painted often.

The original acrylic painting was sold to a private collector by an art gallery in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
