Along Canyon Road
24x36 oil on cotton stretched canvas
$550 plus shipping (email me if interested)
It’s been awhile, I am so glad to be back. I have really missed looking and commenting on everyone else’s beautiful work. Even though I haven’t been posting, I am still painting. I started this 24x36 oil painting before the holidays and after the holidays I was determined to finish it before I started something new. This was a huge challenge for me considering I work really slow and I have never done a painting this large with so many aspects to work out.
When I walked up on this wall and fence along Canyon Road in Santa Fe I was caught up in all the shadow play along the pink adobe wall. With the contrast of the pink wall and the aqua fence I immediately saw a painting in my head. Now that I am finished with it, I am happy to say I started a smaller painting today. It was so nice to see today’s painting develop so fast. I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday. I know I did.
