Big surprise!

… I am actually pretty pleased with this! Maybe because I had no expectations and since I have been avoiding it for so long. This piece is 60 x 120 cm (about 24″ x 48″). I need to come up with a title. The dog is our neighbors’ wonderful Sammie, she was a fantastic hiking buddy. The river is Rio Grande and the flat area is Calabasa Arroyo. I may be galloping in that arroyo tomorrow. Sammie is looking out from Buckman Mesa. Los Alamos, where the atom bomb was invented, is a short distance to the right. Maybe the title should simply be “Hiking with Sammie”?
