The Old Adobe

A scouting trip with my painting partner through the back country of northern New Mexico proved productive. I did a field study of this abandoned homestead, so poignant in its emptiness.

I first used the field study to create this watercolor painting in my studio. Later, I did an acrylic painting of the same subject. Both paintings sold to collectors.

Here’s a link to “Adobe Memories,” my acrylic painting of the same subject.

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