“My paintings are oil on canvas and illustrate my deep reverence for the New Mexico of my boyhood, when rural life was slow and peaceful.
“Inspired by our ever-changing symphony of color, I capture a feeling of impressionism and expressionism. Priming each canvas with a red undercoat, I outline the Sangre de Cristo mountains pulsing with energy and warmth. Chamisa and cottonwoods surround adobe casitas, white clouds billow in a blue sky and my signature trademark, El Viejito (little old man), walks solitary or with a companion.” – Ed Sandoval
