|"Snow at Santuario," 8 x 10 watercolor
One of the places of power on earth is the Santuario de Chimayo, the little church with the miraculous holy dirt, a focus of pilgrims and sick who believe.
I find the entire place healing, even though it's becoming more "touristified" every year, as more and more people discover this remote gem in Northern New Mexico.
It's no accident that I have a small antique bottle filed with some of that sanctified dirt in front of me.
So here is a vision of the magic and enchantment.
