A painting of a prairie in Socorro County, New Mexico. Socorro got its name in 1598 from explorer Juan de Onate, whose tired and hungry men were given food and shelter by the Piro Indians. "socorro" means "help", or "succor" in Spanish.
I was inspired to simply wander into the vastness of this area....and created a painting in the medium of pastels for you to wander into this open range. This is a framed piece on hardboard, 23"x35".
Reproductions of this painting are available. Note cards are 6 for $14.00. Reproductions start at $12.00 each ( 8"x10"). You can order by contacting me at firstname.lastname@example.org To see more paintings and note cards visit my art gallery: http://www.jackprovidentiart.com/
