The Back Gate, Taos

This was actually painted back in February, as a gift for our friends, Julie and Fred Felix, who graciously allowed us to spend a couple of nights with them in their lovely house in Taos, New Mexico. In the excitement over our trip, I had forgotten to take a photo of the finished painting, so Julie took a photo for me. This is the back gate to their house. I used a photo that Julie had posted on her Facebook page as the reference for the painting.
