What a twist. Either way, it was a fun project to do and reminded me of my time spent in New Mexico. I love it there. It is completely the opposite of New Hampshire with the lovely wide horizons and beautiful colors in the earth and sky. Taos was my favorite.

Go see some other Adaptations over at Illustration Friday!
