I was painting the church ruins this week and my brother sent a photo of our mother in 1953 standing beside the slowly melting tower of old San Geronimo. I had never known of this picture and was quite amazed to see it! Deja vu. The bell tower was a little taller then. A newer mission by this name was erected nearby in 1850. e
Added Note: Thank you for all comments. I am sorry this format does not do conversation back and forth for us all. Diane, yes the beautiful old Spanish missions are filled with stories. I have also painted one in Questa NM. I hope to be there and paint the one in Ranchos de Taos soon, San Francisco de Asis. Thank you for the compliment on my painting.
My Facebook page is art centric, for those who might be interested. My FB page has little that is personal on it, no grandbabies or rug hooking or antique collecting. My blog is directed at friends as we share these common interests. e
always glad to hear from friends at firstname.lastname@example.org
