High Road Corral
When my wife and I
visited New Mexico, we wanted to go to Taos from where we were staying in Santa
Fe. There may be other routes, but we
found that we could either go on the ‘high road’ which led us over the mountains
or we could go on the ‘low’ road which followed the Rio Grande River. We were told by the wonderful people in Santa
Fe that the ‘high’ road was less traveled and a little rougher but that the
‘low’ road could be crowded. After some
debate, we finally decided to take one road to Taos and the other one back to
Santa Fe. I’m glad we did because both
provided some breath taking scenery.
About half way on the
‘high’ road, there was a curve from which I could see a corral that was empty
at the time but showed signs that it had been recently used. The barns were in need of repair but it was
apparent that livestock had been sheltered in them in the past few weeks. I’m not sure why I chose to stop and take
some pictures. Maybe it was the
condition of the barns or perhaps it was the contrast that it had with the well
repaired fences. Regardless, I’m glad
that I did because the photos gave me the guide to draw “High Road Corral.”
The original drawing of “High Road
Corral” is a graphite
paper done in a pointillism style. The original is for sale, and
giclee prints are available.
reproductions are on archival paper. The colors of the giclee are as
close as possible to the original, however some differences may occur.
Images will be slightly smaller than paper size listed below due to a minimum one inch border required for printing.
