Capturing both ordinary and extraordinary illusive moments in time is what constantly inspires Victoria Mauldin’s representational depictions of wildlife, figurative subjects and landscapes. Working in acrylics and oils, Mauldin’s paintings provide a “close encounter” with the captivating beauty of the world that surrounds us. Sometimes her paintings incorporate those elements with things that have only been seen in the mind’s eye. Having recently moved from Ruidoso to Santa Fe, Mauldin's Santa Fe studio/gallery will be open for the Eldorado Studio Tour, May 17-19. June 21-23 she will be in the New Mexico Arts and Crafts Show in Albuquerque. July plans include the Ruidoso Art Festival. See the website for additional dates and locations of shows being scheduled.
