"Luna Chapel"

"Luna Chapel"
Jack Providenti

8 x 10 inches
oil on board

While on a walk through old Taos, NM last summer, I spotted this partially hidden facade. I was intrigued with the building and the mountains in the backround,so I took some photos, and painted this scene yesterday.
I recently learned that it was built in 1836 by Juan De Luna, and later acquired by the Taos artist, E.I Couse who added more rooms and a studio sometime around 1866.

If you would like to learn more about this painting, or purchase it, please send me an e-mail.
