Peterson


I’ve spent my life surrounded by New Mexico’s rich mountains, deserts, and skies.   I paint in acrylics on canvas and create very abstract, colorful, paintings.

I am a member of the New Mexico Art League and Rio Grande Art Association.   I am an artist in the Albuquerque Art Workshop, August, 2019.   I was a participant in the 2017 Artists on the Rise show at the New Mexico Cancer Center.   I was also featured as artist of the month in the Blue Lily Atelier, and showed paintings there.   I have had paintings hung in several juried shows, and NM Art League, Masterworks, Encantada, New Mexico State Fair, and Los Griegos and Rio Rancho Libraries.

My painting style follows Po Mo, the art of splashing pigment and water on paper, and dates to China’s Tang Dynasty.  It traditionally is only black and white, but I’ve added some of the new breathtaking colors in acrylic.   I’m also using a palette knife to add color and texture to paintings.
