There were a total of 36 ink line drawings to do that were used in six catalogs. Many of these drawings were quite complex and had to be done under tight deadlines. If I remember correctly, I also went out on the photo shoot to Nevada and New Mexico for some of these catalogs. My wife and I fell in love with Santa Fe and New Mexico in general. We were living in New York at the time which my wife was not fond of after living in Paris. I enjoyed Manhattan, but after a while we both grew a bit weary of the place.
Some of the art was fairly simple, most of it was mechanical and quite complex.
Santa Fe is one of the largest fine art markets in the U.S. with many art galleries. When we came back from New Mexico I decided to do a few new paintings directed at that market and see if I could interest any gallery there to represent me. In the next posts I will show a few of those paintings.
