I have been working as a Fine Artist in New Mexico since I crossed the border from Texas in 1994 and began my NM Landscape Series in 1996 I discovered Acequias and fell in love. I was living in El Rito and one of my Studios was in a Greenhouse made of wood and glass attached to the Adobe Home I lived in. As I completed a Watercolor Painting one of my 'Dreaming Angels Bodies of Light Series,' I looked out at the Acequia and saw a green luminous light the color of a lightening bug spreading across the surface contrasted with a golden light tipping through the Autumn Foliage against a clear blue evening sky. I grabbed my paints, paper and brushes and went out to sit beside the Acequia to paint it and from that first encounter the New Mexico Acequia Series was Born. I'm began painting along the Acequia Madre in 2009 as I love it and it is right around the corner from where I am living on the East side of Santa Fe.
In 2006 I began working on a Series of Paintings while along the Banks and Inside of the Santa Fe River Waterfalls and this is where the Six Elements: Spirit, Soul, Earth, Air, Fire and Water became my Partners in the Creation of the Paintings. In the first works I am using Winsor and Newton Professional Grade Watercolors on D'Arches 100% Cotton Cold Pressed 140 lb Paper on a small scale 7 x 10 Inches.' And last year in 2012 I began a River Journal consisting of watercolor and graphite sketches with prose and also upped the scale of the Watercolor Paintings to 20 by 14 inches.
Currently my work has morphed into what I experience as 'Painting Process Performance Art.' I have named the two New Santa Fe River Waterfall Series 'Water Veils,' and 'Water Dancers.' And I am including other Water Media Golden Airbrush Acrylics combined with India Ink in these works. The River Veils are approximately 10 to 11.5 inches wide by 60 to 70 inches long and are done on 140 lb 100% Cotton Watercolor D'Arches Hot Pressed Paper as are the 'River Dancers,' which are done on Hand Torn Paper Strips approximately 4.5 x 18 inches.
My Great Green Dream is to see The Santa Fe River Restored to a Living River during my life time as it is one of the top 10 Endangered Rivers in America and I am setting aside 10% of the Sales of all the Prints Sold from my Santa Fe River Waterfall Series to Donate to the River Sustainability Project to help Realize this Wonderful Dream!
