This image was sketched outside the Mabel Dodge Luhan House at the 2014 Taos Writing Workshop. The artist, who grew up in the Green Mountains of Vermont and practices medicine near the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia, saw the brilliant blue sky over Taos as dwarfing all, even the towering mountains of New Mexico.

Dr Hostler is the McLemore Birdsong Professor of Pediatrics at the University of Virginia School of Medicine and Vice Provost for Faculty Development at the University of Virginia in Charlottesville.
