Happy Valentine’s Day…

from snowy?! southern New Mexico! The great southwest was not immune to the cold front that is blowing across the states. We went from 65 degrees to 24 degrees with a wind chill of 13! In my quest to capture these images in historic Old Mesilla my car ended up coated in a sheet of ice….pretty! Normally on a Sunday you’d find lots of people attending mass and shopping the plaza. Not so much today!

This image was presented a 2nd place ribbon in the SPPA March Print Competiton. Enjoy!

It was taken in Old Mesilla, New Mexico. The home belongs to a friend of ours.

A new art center recently opened in the Mesilla Valley… a place of form and light where I have photographed often, including the image above. On a recent trip back I stumbled across a beautiful art center – Preston Contemporary Art Center featuring art displays and classes. I may have to schedule my next trip back based on the classes they are offering.  Perhaps you’d like to visit the Land of Enchantment ?  Check out these classes:
