Additional Details

With effortless thick strokes of color, Laverne Nelson Black constructs a benevolent fall moment in Taos. The white of the canvas covering the wagon mirrors the white of the horses and the white of the cloak on the rider at right. Black works the other colors–the browns and tans and blues in a similar fashion, moving them through the picture. Splashes of red create interest and the yellow aspens nod over the scene.
