Atwill is a Santa Fe painter and author of eight other books. He has lived in New Mexico for the last five decades, painting the landscape and motifs from his own gardens in Santa Fe. Over the years he has owned fifty-nine houses of all sizes, restoring the older ones and building the others from the ground up. He comments on each of them, and the many people involved along the way. There is a separate section of his choices when putting a house design together, what makes his houses distinctive from many others. Another section of this book describes the houses he almost owned and the ones he is happy to have avoided. This is a memoir of Atwill's life in Santa Fe, with introductory chapters about how he arrived at this town of artists and writers.

About the Author:

A painter and author of eight other books, Atwill has lived in Santa Fe for many of the last years. He was born in California and graduated from The University of Texas at Austin. He worked in advertising before becoming a full time painter in the early 1970s. Dozens of one man exhibits and many group exhibits have been held throughout the Southwest. The gardens surrounding his houses have been a continuing source for his painting motifs, as well as the varied landscapes of Northern New Mexico. He is working on a new collection of short stories, tentatively titled Hyperion and expected to be published in 2017.
