Well I'm ready to start posting some paintings again. I woke up this morning with a tune in my head - singing the words "This land is my land". I took this as a sign and this morning I did a painting which represents the meaning of these words to me.
As most of you know we lived in Arizona for 7 years and New Mexico for 5 years and I have to say the I'm a big fan of the Southwest desert.
This painting is 10 x 20 on heavy linen paper using professional acrylic paints. The painting does have texture to it as part of it is done using special brushes I developed which I call "palette brushes".
I use these brushes as one would use a palette knife.
Bright, bold southwest colors are used throughout the painting depicting the desert setting sun.
This painting can be found on my ETSY STORE
Hope you enjoy.
