A moving and moody Pueblo scene with all the right elements.  Adobe walls, protruding support beams, ladders, and domed huernos in the background.  Wonderful light and mood that captures the romance of the Pueblos. Technically, the print is a delight, with strong lines, sold tones, and a practiced range of light.

matted and framed in original gallery frame from Village Gallery in Lake Forest, California.
