Roadrunner at Tumacacori

Acrylic 16"x20" This February I was privileged to participate as an artist in the 57th Annual Tubac Art Festival. It was a five day event running from February 10th to the 14th. Before I departed for Tubac, I painted this roadrunner along with the historical mission of Tumacacori in the background. I enjoyed studying about the history of the Church of Tumacacori (as well as learning how to pronounce it!) Painting the mission was fun and makes me think that I would enjoy painting the other beautiful historic missions and churches that dot Southern Arizona. I am thinking of painting the San Xavier Mission near Tucson for my up-coming show, Tucson's 4th Ave. Street Fair and Art Show, April 1st through the 3rd.
