Kathleen Elsey Painting Workshop, Southwest Paintings, Pilar, Summer Afternoon

This painting was made in September Pilar New Mexico in a small village just south of Taos. I climbed to the top of the hill behind the village to capture this quaint scene. That’s the Rio Grande River running through the village. It was a very hot day. The village with it’s red-roofed wooden church has hardly changed with the noticeable exception of more adobe houses in the village.

I see color everywhere.
