    Wendy:"This piece was painted in the heat of June at Ghost Ranch near Abiquiu, New Mexico. I found shade in one of the class buildings on the mesa. It had big windows facing this scene. Georgia O'Keeffe painted here and I understand why this land intrigued her. I also wonder if she ever felt like she were melting from the heat while she painted. (I did!) Pastel, 12 x 16 inches"

    Photo by Tom Blazier, Signature Member

    A nice vantage point in which to paint the Rio Grande Gorge, near Taos, New Mexico: "This is accessed by way of state route 110, just south of Taos area. It is the turnoff to a golf course, community college and National Guard facility (there is signage for each). Follow the road about 4 miles until it dead ends at a parking lot. Take the trail that is on the right as you enter the parking lot (the same side that has the brick bathroom.) It is a short walk to the place where I took this photo. The old road goes down to the river. You can also access this road from the other end, from Pilar." - Tom Blazier.
