Painting Winter

While listening to music from the room next door, Painter Enrique Harrison talks about moving to Cedro, New Mexico in 1981. A life long artist, Enrique shares a story about gathering wood and water in wintery Tijeras canyon, mud plastering the oldest house in Cedro, and painting retablos by kerosene lamp and candle light during cold winters.

Recorded at Albuquerque 25 November 2015 in the artist’s studio.
