This painting was done in early October, 2010 at Ghost Ranch in New Mexico. This is my favorite painting from the week. The class painted on and around the ranch for a week. Each night after dinner we would have a class with the teacher, Ann Templeton and she would discuss our days work. This site is the Chama River which runs beside the 13 mile road that goes to the Chapel that the local Monks have built. They live and work at the chapel, which is really out in the middle of nowhere. Oh wait, the Ghost Ranch is out in the middle of nowhere, it was like being at an adult summer camp, and it was fun to visit with everyone else in the class.
