This expressive landscape painting was done near the Jemez Pueblo in the mountains of northern New Mexico, an hour north of Albuquerque. The area is famous for its rich earth and red rocks. It’s a special place, sacred to the Native Americans who live close by. The piece is painted with loose, lush brushstrokes.  This artwork is on cradled birch panel 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.
