San Francisco de Asis Church

Taos, NM, San Francisco De Asis Church winter sceen.

Taos, NM, San Francisco De Asis Church winter sceen.

This is a 24″ by 18″ painting of the San Francisco de Asis Church located in Taos, New Mexico. This church has been photographed and painted many times. Ansel Adams has photographed this church twice that I know about. I am attracted to the simple form of the back view. If you visit you will find that the foreground is a parking lot with large stones to protect the church from trafic. I visualized the church as it might have appeared 100 years ago with native sage brush.
