Painting of the Week


This is a painting of the Little Red School House in Red River, NM. I never went to school there (I went down the canyon to Questa). Bo and Jesse went to school in RR, but the school district moved in portable buildings around the old school house. Before the portable buildings were moved in, the grass around the old building was one of the few places we could play softball as a kid growing up in RR. Flat grassy spots are hard to come by in the Rocky Mountains. RR is a small valley. A few years ago, the Little Red School was moved to another location to become part of the RR Museum.

Laurie, The Cascade Exposures site is awesome. My computer is so slow that I have only sen a few pictures at a time before I get antsy and move on. But I will go back as time permits and look at the great photos. Thanks for the tip.

I vote for the studio in town with DSL.... LOL! But then, what you'd pay in overhead on the studio, if that was the only reason you'd do it, it would be cheaper to get high speed put in at home.
