SANCTUARY OF PADRE MARTINEZ ( Martinez Hacienda – Taos, New Mexico) – New 60″x50″ Work in Progress Yesterday completed the underpainting on the 60″x50″ Sanctuary of Padre Martinez.  It is of the Rio Pueblo that runs in front of the Martinez Hacienda in Taos.  Got this view on a photo trip with my dear friends Rick Finney and Jerry Walter from Taos.  It was a lovely October morning – walked into the shadows as the river was running – almost had the feeling I was in church.  The darks and the lights in this one are tricky, but when I looked at it last night, I could almost see the finished canvas – a smile on my face! ….Stay tuned!
