"Sky City" by artist Carolene

Size: 16 x 20


“Sky City is the pueblo for the Acoma Indians in northwest NM, close to Farmington, NM. One wonders how these hardy people carried water and food to the top. It is still inhabited. It is a thrilling ride to the top of this mountain where the people built their pueblo. It took quite a few years for me to get the courage to depict this unique site. I finally decided to fake the buildings from a distance on the top of this magnificent site.”
Note Carolene’s beautiful use of brilliant complementary colors that vibrate across the canvas. Bold brushwork, confident abstract shapes suggest the vast ever changing chroma of New Mexico landscape and architecture.
