No, not talking about Saint Adrienne. This is the name of the oldest Catholic mission church in Southern New Mexico, located in the first Mexican town in the region, Dona Ana. It was established in 1843, just a few years before the Mexicans lost to the Americans and this became US territory. Dona Ana is only a few kilometers north of Las Cruces, which eclipsed it when the railroad came in 1988. But many of the original adobe houses and church remain, straddling the original path of the El Camino Real (Royal Highway) between Mexico City and Santa Fe.
I started a painting of the buttresses along the east side of the church more than a year ago. I finally found the urge, in recent spate of painting, to finish the work. Here is the result.
