Honeycrisp with Ganado (sold)

Honeycrisp with Ganado, oil on masonite, 5" X 5", 2007

I grew up in Santa Fe, New Mexico, at the confluence of some amazing cultures: indigenous, and a couple waves of Western European expansion (starting with the Conquistadors). I have a few pieces around to remind me of home. The Navajo rug in the background (the Ganado of the title) is one such piece.
The apple is a Honeycrisp. Yum.

Jason, Beautiful painting, I have never lived in New Mexico, but have many items from previous trips. They are very inspiring and beautiful, nice body of work.
