    Photographer of the American Southwest

Newsletter Issue No. 3  May 8, 2011
This past month was spent in both Northern New Mexico and Southern California. Spring time and April in particular, really highlights the differences between to these two beautiful places. The mountains around Taos were still covered in a new dusting of snow. The days were in the high 50's, with evenings in the teens. Beautiful clouds during the day, with the occasional thunder storm. Oceanside on the other hand is starting the see the beginnings of the summertime onslaught. The beaches are starting to fill up on the weekends. The street fair is drawing huge crowds on Thursday's, and I have had to turn on the air conditioner both in the truck and at the office. First, a picture of Taos Mountain and then the San Diego Skyline, just 2 weeks apart in time frame:

Other news included a notice from the Visual Arts Society of Texas show in Denton, Texas, that my image of the Rancho's Church at Night, had won the Merchant's Award for photography. That show is still hanging at the Meadows Gallery through June 3, 2011, in Denton, Texas.

My wife Christie has been painting since 1984. She works in both oils and watercolors. The two images above are a couple of my favorites of her recent work, both of these being in oil.  Chris originally started painting with the urging of now prominent southwest painter, Linda Glover Gooch. Other notables she has studied with include: Ken Decker (California), Linda Doll (California), Duane Light (California), Ora O'Toole (California), Wallace Lee (Utah), Carol Marine (Texas) & Susan Cox (California). Christie also attended the prestigious Royal College of Art in London, England (1991), Mounts Bay Art Center in Cornwall, England (1992), and Palomar College Arts Department in San Marcos, California (1990-1995).

News & Travel:
Last month's newsletter came out right during the middle of our last trip over to New Mexico. I included a few images taken in the southern part of the state. White Sands, Carrizozo, & the bustling metropolis of Duran, New Mexico. To continue where I left off, I thought I would show you a few more picture and describe some of the places we traveled after that. Here are a couple in northern New Mexico & Southern Colorado.

2 Tipi's

The above image was taken between Salida & Alamosa, Colorado. The mountains in the background are the southern end of the Rockies, known as the Sangre de Cristo.

Valdez Chapel

This image is looking down into the village of Valdez, north of Taos about 10 miles or so. The chapel shown is the San Antonio Church, built in 1823.

Also, for those of you that are going to be in the Espanola, NM area, my friend Craig Varjabedian is going to be showing his newest work titled: "My Camera in New Mexico". His images are in celebration of the New Mexico Statehood Centennial (1912-2012), and will be on display at the Northern New Mexico Regional Art Center - Convento Gallery. The show will be running from June 3rd through 29th, 2011. The gallery is located at 101 Calle de las Espanolas.
