"Every Color Is Wild" Barbara Meikle Show Preview
Barbara Meikle is an artist who paints the simple world outside of her door in Tesuque, a village on the outskirts of Santa Fe, New Mexico. With each brushstroke she brings alive the charm of the burro at her neighbor's house, the bird perched on Ruthie, her mini-mule, or the horses racing in the pasture. The view down the arroyo, or the mountains in the distance comes alive in vivid shades of pink and purple, ocher and brown. Stunningly colorful clouds become a focal point of the New Mexico desert landscape, giving drama and brilliance to a land some have called brown and drab.
