Church Lady

The completion of Ghost Church--Of the chapel in La Cueva ,NM

Here's one of one of the churches in Truchas--on the high road between Taos and Santa Fe. Generally the sky is blue but I like making it red.
This is a chapel in Placita (not Placitas). From the Highway you see its rounded back. I can't remember the village it is in but I do remember buying a bushel of apples nearby.

By the way, when I first started working in oil pastels many of my works were of chapels and churches. My brother, Chris, called me the church lady. I didn't like the label so I expanded my repetoire to include other structures.


  1. It's great to see the finished piece of the church in La Cueva.
    It's too bad your brother called you that - your churches are really beautiful.

  2. I kind of like the label, definitely makes me think of Saturday Night Live. I've also been tagged by media as 'the chair lady'.

  3. Thanks, Elisa & Veronica. I think his point was I might want to expand my audience to those who might not want churches hanging on the walls. Smiles!


If you've got a comment or a question, let me know, I'd love to hear from you.
