This very old church in Chimayo, is a very sacred place. They say that the dirt is blessed, and heals. Some rub the dirt on the part of their body that needs healing. This artist who is painting this church, is taking in all the beauty and tranquillity of this wonderful place to be. Chimayo, is along the High Road to Taos, a scenic byway in New Mexico.
