Snowed Under in Seco by Jann Alexander © 2014


Beneath a blanket of snow in Arroyo Seco, there must be a story to go with a small and lonely child’s grave marker at La Santisima Trinidad mission church. There’s a peacefulness to the tiny cross, bravely making its mark alone in the snow, that comes with a sorrowful implication of a cold white blanket for eternity.

Alone in Seco, painted in oil on canvas, shows the whole story as I found it one wintry day in northern New Mexico, on the hunt for mission churches.
