Secret Shadows 8x12 Oil by Michael Chesley Johnson

The Land of Enchantment (New Mexico) is filled with much beauty, a tremendous amount of it tucked away where the busy traveler, speeding to his next destination, won’t see it.  This is one such place in the Zuni Mountains in the western part of the state.  A scant hour off of Interstate 40, this is Mormon Country, with ranches and agriculture.  I love this area for its quiet calm and beauty.  We’ll paint places like this in my Paint the Southwest workshops.
