Bob’s latest painting of El Santuario de Chimayo shows a lighter, looser style. Using watercolors on hot press paper he faded the colors around the edges, using the white of the paper to frame the historic church.

    Bob, REALLY REALLY like the New View of Chimayo painting. Please do some more paintings where the painting sort of fades into the canvas or whatever you call it. This is a striking, eye catching painting. Pat Plomondon
    Could you do this one with a little ” Bobism” in it?
