The Midwest ... Taos, Rocky Mountains, Kansas Plains & More
I'll always be a woman of the plains, where I grew up appreciating the beauty of Kansas landscapes. Through the years I've come to appreciate beauty everywhere I go across the Midwest--from Wisconsin, to Colorado, and Taos, New Mexico--where I became a student once again.
Taos and the Rocky Mountains
The Sacred Mountain is distinctive among a chain of mountains found on the east side of the Rio Grand River and the village of Taos. The Pueblo Indians have long honored this mountain as it has sustained those who have lived in the pueblo at the foot of the mountain for centuries with food and water.
Together Taos and Ranchos de Taos, located on the northern plateau of the Rio Grande Valley, have for centuries been a destination for artists from many cultures. Today this area has become a beacon to a cadre of more well-to-do lovers of the world of art ... while the presence of the Art Studio Extension Program of the University of New Mexico draws young (and oldsters like me) for classes and camaraderie.
