“The paintings that have been included in the Taos Today show are from a series of paintings on pilgrimage. It was a very satisfying body of work, both visually as well as spiritually.
There is something in the earth itself that is very healing—full of wonder and surprise. I plan to work on another series with the same theme. I wonder where it will take me?” – Claire Brandenburg
