Pilar is south of Taos in the canyon leading towards Santa Fe. The Rio Grande River flows into this canyon at the little town of Pilar. It is a beautiful spot, full of camping, hiking, and turn out areas. In the fall when the days are starting to shorten and the light is lower in the sky, the tamarisk turns bright orange, my favorite color!  This piece is on gallery wrapped canvas and the painting continues around the sides. It comes ready to hang.

Getting to Know Peggy

Peggy is an impressionist landscape painter based in New Mexico. Her ongoing journey with art began as a small child. She was inspired by wonderful art teachers while growing up, and in turn decided to become an art teacher herself. Peggy spent most of her career shaping young artists at the advanced high school level, imparting values, strength and perseverance upon them. Now in retirement, Peggy has turned her energy to a full-time art career for the first time. She works in a loose, gestural style with brightly-toned layers of paint, capturing the colors and feelings of the southwest. When she’s not making art, she likes to go hiking around Taos, always seeking inspiration for her next painting.
