Canal Walk at Sunset

I was recently notified that my painting, "Canal Walk at Sunset," oil,  22" x 28", is among 31 pieces by local artists that will be purchased by the City of Albuquerque for display in public buildings. I feel fortunate and honored that my painting was selected from the 500+ entries by more than 200 artists.

In New Mexico, canals and irrigation ditches are more commonly referred to by their Spanish name, "acequia." The cottonwood tree-lined acequia in the painting is west of the Rio Grande River in Albuquerque. The dirt roadway offers hikers and bikers a view of the Sandia Mountains in the background.
