Mountains and mesas.
Rivers and two-track roads.

For many years I have hiked off-trail in New Mexico’s desert wilderness. These watercolors celebrate the presence of mountains, the blessing of rain, and the sometimes visionary traces humans have left on our spare, essential, beautiful land.

All paintings watercolor and gouache, 5″x5″ on 11″x11″ #300 Arches cold press watercolor paper.
