|The Sandias, when I grew up, taken from the back yard of our house on Sandia Base|
I wrote the Truchas mountains were my favorite in New Mexico, commenting on my latest watercolor, and several chimed in about the Sandias at Albuquerque.

Any painting I see of them, or even more, photos on social media, grab my attention just as they do whenever I'm in New Mexico. They also go in a folder on my computer, for reference, inspiration, and just because.

So, for my friends who commented, here are two of Dad's paintings, both about 24 x 36, one of mine and what they looked like when I was growing up.
I never attempt anything this large, because I'm not that good, nor am I patient enough to put in all that detail time.
P.S. You can tell someone from New Mexico, because we all know how to spell Albuquerque.
