Unlike the Four Corners Roadtrip series, these paintings aren't done in temporal sequence. This, in fact, was based on one of the last photos I took before the sun really beat it back behind the horizon and I put the camera away. The light on the foothills of the Jemez Mountains was incredible, and I tried to capture it in this painting. I kept a single building in - a western-styled barn, I'm guessing, from my blurry reference photo. And it had to be red.
