"Picuris Pueblo Church" by Carolene

Size: 16 x 20


“The Picuris church is another example of the beauty of the mission adobe churches in Northern New Mexico. They are begging to be painted. I love to paint the dynamic sun of NM. Noted for its brilliance because of the high altitude of the area, artist worldwide recognize it as "painterly light." "The light is so beautiful here" is an oft quotation. Then add the purple mountains and the blue, blue sky. The Picuris church in on a side road off the High Road to Taos. Well worth the side trip. I respectfully paint the beautiful native women of New Mexico. Having been a clothing designer in Southern New Mexico for 25 years, I love to attempt to paint my idea of their colorful attire.”
