From July 5-11, I was was on retreat at Christ of the Desert Monastery
near Abiquiu, New Mexico. It is an astoundingly beautiful place,
located up a canyon ringed with sandstone cliffs, accessed by a long
winding gravel road. During my time there, I made a number of
watercolors of the
canyon, the guest house, and the chapel. Here are the successful ones.
This is a sketch of the guest house where I stayed. 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 inches, moleskine notebook.
