Art & the Landscape


Art & Archaeology Mesa Verde

Sleeping Ute, View from Mesa Verde N.P.

This is the Painting I donated to the N.P.S. after I was Artist in Residence at Mesa Verde. You can see this painting at the Museum on Chapin Mesa.

Oil on Canvas, 30″ x 36″

These are some paintings of Balcony House & Long House in Mesa Verde.  Its a very warm and hospitable to tourists today, but was probably a hairy place to live in if you were a grandma or small child since the front drops straight down into a deep canyon

Balcony House, Room for the Past in the Present

 These empty rooms are very small & claustrophobic.

Oil on Canvas 16″ x 20″  $150 USD

Windows to the Past, Balcony House

The windows of these ancient buildings are dark and seem unknowable, yet hold the past’s secrets for us to find.

Watercolor on Paper, 12″ x 16″  $150 USD

Turkey Window, Balcony House

 A dark window in the back of Balcony House, smoke blackened room with a turkey enclosure and incised turkey tracks.

Oil on Canvas  16″ x 20″ $125 USD

Living on the Edge, Long House, Mesa Verde N.P.

Living on the Edge, Long House Mesa Verde N.P.

Long House is an amazing site; I know of at least two other artists who’ve painted this particular view.  I was attracted by the intimate yet mysterious feeling.

Sunset at Long House

Here’s another view of Long House, the sunset turning the canyon red and warm. Much  of what we see now was once enclosed.  It was dark and smoky.
