Marvelous color composition, Patti! Love the yellow and blue, and the detail and clarity is excellent. I see you had a great trip to New Mexico - I just love all your window and door compositions - each one is more striking than the next. I remember the area well and especially the quality of the light - it was truly spectacular and so clean and crisp. #9735862
