It's the beginning of fall and the cottonwoods and willows leaves at the lakes and rivers in New Mexico are starting to turn color. Early morning at a northern New Mexico lake.
Perfect for home or office.

I love working quickly using a calligraphy brush on rough paper, going for the zen of the moment. I keep the colors pure while at the same time letting the paper do the work; looking for happy accidents that I can exploit. Many times I will take a scene and modify the composition to minimize the basic elements to maintain a deceptively simple beauty.
