Rio Grande River

Snaking Rio Grande, 12 x 16

Another angle of the Tex-Mex borderline... right now the Rio Grande is high and flowing fast, although sometimes you can go there and see almost no water at all. (The flow is controlled by a dam in Mexico according to local water needs.) From high on a hillside it looks quiet and peaceful as it meanders through the land - but it is a rushing force of power.

Big Bend!! I haven't been out there in too long and this is a great time of year to go, especially if you get to paint with Jill and Kraig! Lovely work.

Hi Laurel,

Somehow my comment was cut off. I was saying that I've been busy marking and didn't see these last stunning paintings.

Take care,

This is such a beautiful picture! Love how you have captured the transient nature of the river and mentioned it here as well! Makes it all the more effective and beautiful.
