Title: Storms Over Taos Canyon
24 x 48
Weight: 20.0 lbs.
From the low road, the earth suddenly opens up to reveal an ancient scar as breathtaking as any place on earth. A tiny river flows from the north, winding like a snake.
The storms are building. Dark grays and black fill the sky. What an incredible backdrop, so full of raw energy, but something will have to give. Lightning strikes in the distance.
The sky opens up and releases its bounty. The smell is intoxicating. The canyon is still brightly lit. Soon, it will get its turn to replenish as the shadows consume the light.
The high desert drinks up the rain as the dark clouds and thunder move off into the distance. I hope they make it to Santa Fe.

Charles A. Reyna is originally from Texas and now resides in Santa Fe, New Mexico. He studied Art History at The University of Houston and The University of New Mexico, In 1998, Charles began his career as a self taught web and graphics artist. He has incorporated those skills learned as an artist/designer into his latest artistic endeavors. In late 2009, having sketched ideas for about a year, he started painting. His love for abstract art inspired him to make this genre the vehicle for his own unique contribution to art.
Creating art allows me to express what is inside me, telling the story of who I am. What an incredible feeling it is to bring life to a canvas. I paint abstract compositions with hints of representation, coloring the canvas with my own unique feelings and emotions free of all boundaries. The most rewarding part of making art is being able to share this journey with others. I love immersing myself in this vast world of artistic expression.
