Adobe and turquoise--magic

Taos Magic, No. 1, 8 x 10, watercolor, 140 lb. d'Arches cold press paper
Taos Pueblo...Centuries of spirits under a sacred mountain in Northern New Mexico, even before it was Mexico or New Spain. 
It draws you like a magnet of magic--loved by artists and photographers who sense it not as a curiosity, but as a place of power, of creativity. Power--Always the light, always the colors, always the people, always....
Adobe and turquoise, magic always changing colors of the earth, reflecting the ever-changing light of the sky and the landscape and people.
