I've painted this view at least ten or fifteen times! It's a photo I took over 20 years ago down on scenic Rio Grande Blvd in the valley that runs through Albuquerque. These adobe walls are really substantial, and this one has a window that allows a glimpse of the fields and trees beyond the road.
The pink is a little exaggeration of the color, but I like it. This is a romantic little painting, so the sweet colors seem to work. It's definitely "old New Mexico". I hope you like it.
