Adobe and Pigeons

6 x 8
oil on canvas

This little adobe was across the plaza from Ranchos Church, Taos, an old church in New Mexico much painted and photographed by artists. Unfortunately the plaza is now also a parking lot and it is hard to get an unobscured view of the church.  I turned around and saw the simple geometric shape of this adobe against a blue sky, plus the four pigeons.  The simplicity struck me.

This instantly made me feel like a kid with blocks. Great shapes. And the four simple black birds just make it sing!
