At times our own light goes out and is rekindled by a spark from another person. Each of us has cause to think with deep gratitude of those who have lighted that flame within us – Albert Schweitzer

This morning – beautiful symphony by American composer named Picker – “Old and Lost Rivers.” The bells from Our Lady of Guadalupe ringing for Sunday Mass – comforting. Heard a chorus of coyotes singing at 3AM! The old rooster on Peralta St. loudly letting his ladies know who is boss. Taos!!!

My Neighbor’s House

Studio No. 1317 – My Neighbor’s House 8″ x 16″ original oil, $600.00 sold

Don Eusavio was my next door neighbor when I lived in Truchas and by observing him each day, he taught me how to live. He had lived in the same house for most of his life and there was a field between us where Henry Romero pastured his cows.  I watched the old man from a distance – and if there was a secret to life he had found it – quite simply it was habit and routine.  Each morning I would hear him tap-tapping on something in his shed, then he would carry in some wood from the big pile in his yard.  The smoke from his chimney would rise and he would fix his lunch-  Then he might put on his green baseeball cap, grab his orange bucket and pick apricots.  His friend Rosita might come calling and they would go for a drive.  He lived an uncomplicated life – on purpose.  He was a happy man!

Capilla de Placitas

Studio No. 1017 – Capilla de Placitas, 10″ x 10″ original oil, $600.00

Still remember the first time I saw this little church years and years ago on one of my many trips back home to Truchas.  Had my camera with me – parked near the gas statiion across the road and climbed part way up the water tower to get a better view.  Have painted this place many times front and back – it is a talisman, a sacred place – many candles, many prayers…
