Taos Workshop Watercolor Painting

Every Spring I teach a watercolor workshop in Taos New Mexico and this painting was done at one of our favorite painting locations. It is a little town outside of Taos with lots of things to paint and an ice cream parlor that makes the most delicious lunches. I have studied this scene many times over the years trying to decide the best angle to paint from and finally decided on this location. In spite of the tombstone I did not want this to be a sad or melancholy painting so I filled the church yard with yellow and white dandelions and basked the scene in afternoon sunlight. This painting is full of Symbolism and I leave it to the viewer to decide their own ideas and feelings with the full knowledge that they may be different from mine. If you would leave a comment I would enjoy reading what symbolism you derive from this painting.
