Watercolor watershed


"Santuario in the Snow," 13 3/4 by 17 3/4 (framed), watercolor, 140 lb d'Arches cold press paper

Watersheds. Sources of life downstream. Watercolors do that for me sometimes, after the failures and frustrations at least, when they all come together.

Today's success story is such a watershed, the Santuario de Chimayo in New Mexico, which I've painted many times. This one is also special, as it was commissioned. 

I've featured it before, but today I picked it up framed, ready to deliver on Saturday.
