“Santa Fe River Turbulence”, oil, 10″ x 16″.  I have returned to this spot on Alameda many times while the water was still flowing – or sometimes not. I have discovered that painting “en Plein air” in a venue that invokes many memories, such as camping by the river as a child, adds a sparkle that is otherwise missing.

I first began paintings of this scene in a Mentoring Program by Albert Handell. This small 6×12 painting was called “Santa Fe River Flows 1” (sold). Number 2 is still available.
