About this Painting
NARRATIVE

A place of volcanoes, way out beyond the last bit of civilization, where sky and land clash often and violently, the earth has cracked open in a great chasm, an abyss by any reckoning; a place where monsters may lurk, even perhaps, dragons. A storm blows by, colorful, rainbow-like and quick, leaving but a trace of wet on the walls of the bleak deep crevice. Not the sort of place one would wander recklessly, and yet, its stark beauty demands attention. A place to wander in and get lost. Forever.

DESCRIPTION
An imaginary reckoning of the Taos Gorge begun one day when I was still a member of Sage Fine Art in Taos. Now it's not that the walls are closer than they are in reality, but rather that they are steeper and deeper. I especially enjoyed painting the sweep of colorful rain and really pushing the contrast of the whitest white of the storm to the darkest dark of the canyon wall in shadow.
