Aqui Rio Grande

In the dry southwest, the river cuts through the desert like a knife and leaves an impression both on the landscape and the people who live in it. Under the blazing blue sky, spring’s colors came to their fullest potential – creating a dynamic but peaceful plein air painting, a contradiction inspired by the landscape itself.
