Rudolfo A. Anaya Inspiration - Ultima

Contributed by

A copy of Bless me Ultima travelled with me when I moved to Scotland. Many of the pages brought to life my memories of Santa Fe. From the aroma of warm tortillas to the corridors of Wood Gormley school. My imagination was incited and I produced two paintings the imagery of which springs from that book. I may return to that theme among other new works to come. My cousin, Jim Baca owns one of these and the other hangs beside it in his home. You can all view them and others on my website. Have a look. Hope to meet you when I'm back in Santa Fe next year. Congratulations on creating such a wonderful site.

Buen provecha,

Miguel M. Padilla
