Invitation to Virtual Exhibit from
María de Echevarría's Studio in New Mexico
I hope you and your family and friends are in good health. My husband and I are still in New Mexico because of the pandemic, and I have been painting in my studio here as much as I could.
Below find a selection of my works from 2019 and 2020. You will probably notice a change in colors and style; this has to do with the isolation we all have been experiencing and the light and sun of New Mexico, that make colors so vibrant.
I deeply appreciate the interest you have been showing for my work thru the years, and as always, your comments and inquiries are welcome.
Wishing everybody a come back to normalcy in 2021!

When I paint I tend to reduce details and to use a controlled number of colors. As the work progresses, so also is the relationship between what is emerging on the canvas and myself. Most frequently, I start by applying thin layers of acrylic since this medium dries quickly while I give body and shape to the painting. Then, I work applying thin layers of oil, oil being my preferred medium.
Always of great concern to me are the light and the “soul” of the painting. The texture, the agreement of lines and the way the colors work with each other are equally important, and I continue working until the painting gets its “soul”.
New Mexico artists are amazing!
