6x8, Oil, $250

Perhaps the trees are too evenly space. But it's the forerunner of the other "woodland" paintings.. I think that my love of the woods comes through in this painting. This was up at the Big Tesuque Campground near the Santa Fe Ski slope. No, I no longer camp out, but it was tempting. Available at the Marigold Arts Gallery on Canyon Road, http://www.marigoldarts.com. This is the first painting of the "Return to the Rivers" series at the Tesuque Aspen stream (not really a river).
