~ ‘sunset over baldy ~ philmont’ ~ by dawn chandler ~ oil on canvas ~ 24” x 24” ~ from the archive ~ if you check out my latest ‘takeover’ post @travelnewmexico, you’ll see the photo upon which this painting is based ~ interesting to compare the two now & see how much bluer I made the scene in my painting vs the photo. . to look at this view today, I’m guessing we’d see a lot of smoke, as much of the land between where we’re standing (on hwy 21 just south of cimarron) and that distant peak of baldy mountain is on fire…. . blessed be the army of heroic firefighters though, who have somehow managed to minimize the fire’s growth the past few days, so that it appears to have stabilized — at least as of this morning — at about 37,000 acres. #blessedbethefirefighters . {for some of my photos of philmont, check out my IG takeover over at @travelnewmexico 💚}. . . . #philmont #philmontscoutranch #uteparkfire #cimarron #baldymountain #iwtgbtp #sangredecristos #travelnm #travelnewmexico #oilpainting #oilpainter #landscapepainting #newmexico #newmexicoskies #ilovenewmexico #newmexicoart #newmexicoartist #santafeart #santafeartist #lookaround #deepbreath #hikinglife #optoutside #gratitude #heroic #dawnchandler #dawnchandlerart #taosdawn at Philmont Scout Ranch
