Finished Painting – August 9, 2012

Pilar Resting Place


Away from the tourist track, high above the New Mexico village of Pilar lies a distinctive cemetery. A strong Hispanic heritage is evident in the grave markers and plastic floral decorations. Views from the cemetery include the Rio Grande flowing southward through the Rio Grande Gorge.

Bob started this paining the first day of the Kilborn workshop in July, after visiting the cemetery for a morning sketching session. Recently he added shading with his  small squares and finished the work with India ink details.
