Since the 70's when I lived in the San Francisco bay area, my favorite state has been Arizona, painting at the Grand Canyon and Tribal Parks in the north east such as Monument Valley and Canyon de Chelly. After moving to Atlanta GA in 95, I still went to AZ to paint, but now I had to drive through NM to get there. It takes a long days drive into the late night to get from Atlanta to NM, where I now begin painting, working my way across the state over several days before reaching AZ. Gallup is one of our favorite stops and usually spend a few days there, eating, shopping and painting. The buttes up around Shiprock is a great area too. Of course, I have been to Santa Fe and Taos often, but I prefer the outer, less popular areas, such as the Peco River, and canyon as it winds up into the mountains.
Hello everyone, I am bringing a small group of painters to NM in Sep. I have plenty of places to paint for the first week where we will be staying in Albuquerque, than heading over to Ghost Ranch. The second week we will be in Taos. We will definitely be at the Rio Grande Gorge, maybe head up to Eagle's Nest. Any other suggestions for painting spots near Taos. would love to hook up with some of the group members too!
Jeanean, I don't live in Taos but get there 3 or 4 times a year to paint. Try: Arroyo Hondo Road north of Taos & the area around the John Dunn bridge. Also lots of areas around Arroyo Seco. My very favorite spot is the Rio Pueblo Gorge area. I can't remember the name/# of the road, but go past the country club in Ranchos de Taos ALMOST all the way to the end of the road. The road will dead end at the gorge. Right before the dead end, take a right turn on a very narrow road (almost just tire tracks & rough) & bear to the left for some fabulous views all around that area. The area near Pilar, south of Ranchos de Taos is also nice, has lots of chamisa & runs along the river. September should be great & the Chamisa should be in bloom. Have a great time & post your paintings on your page! Maybe I'll run into you down there, as I usually go sometime in September.
