Dream Flying to Taos, 2005 Mark Scantling
This painting is from 30 plus years of summer drives from Santa Fe to Taos, New Mexico. I have been forever fascinated by the glimpses I get of the Rio Grande Gorge as I drive north on Highway 68. I have even dreamt about these scenes. This is from one of the dreams, me like a bird – a hawk perhaps – gliding along silently above the gorge and Paseo del Pueblo sur, always moving toward the horizon.
For those who are on the road, from the east to the west, north to south, be blessed by the beauty that surrounds you.
