EARLY SNOW CLOUDS AT PICURIS – Archival Print from an original painting – you are invited to visit The High Road Print Catalog.

yes!  It’s that time of year again – fall sneaked up on us here about
two nights ago – a chill in the air.  This morning landlord checking the
heating zones in the house so I won’t freeze and fall on a brush
midstroke!  Moved to New Mexico 47 years ago this month.  This morning I
was looking at all these images in this catalog – painted over my years
in Truchas – and I wondered how it happened that I got so lucky to land
in this place – such a chaotic set of circumstances brought me here all
that long time ago – another storm of events brought me full circle to
Tesuque – right up the street from El Nido where I had my first New
Mexico “art show” – bet those paintings still resonate with the sweat
and stomps of flamenco dancer Vicente Romero!  Just coming home to
myself again (I am slow to change) –  carry these places with me every
day when I sit down at that big easel of mine.  What I am feeling today
is a deep and profound gratitude.
