David Montgomery, fellow plein air painter, friend and noted Colorado landscape artist is being featured this month in TAOS Magazine and at Walden Gallery in its new location on Kit Carson in Taos. A chance to harass Dave is reason enough but I don't need much of and excuse to visit Taos. While Colorado is still mostly white, Taos is usually sunny and their snow always appears so charming and decorative.
Dave made the most of the weather by painting en plein air in front of Walden. There is actually a pretty nice view across the street to the Parson's Gallery patio. Here he is talking with some young fans. Check out his website to see more of David Montgomery's work and while there you can also read his thoughts on conservation activism and wilderness advocacy. His work really does celebrate nature in the wild places of Southern Colorado and New Mexico.
