This is the No.139th. Painting in my 365/2010 series.
Title: "SAINT FRANCIS OF ASSISI AT RANCHO de TAOS"
Size: 22X30 inches
Medium: Watercolor on DeArches 140lb. cold press paper.
This little church, not far from the center of Taos, was made famous by the paintings of Georgia Okeefe in the 1950's. This church is still a function meeting place for the people of that region.
There is an annual "mudding" of the structure from the inside out. During the summer months the sun keeps the building in great shape but during the wet rainy season it does suffer damage. It is a community volunteer project that bring the worshippers close together each year.
This is really the back of the church. I do hope you like what I do.
Comments and/or remarks are appreciated.
