Assumption of The West (over the Sangre de Christo mountains). 2014. Acrylic on Board, 36" x 48"
My windows for painting open and close sporadically, and I've learned to just jump in on something that I find inspiring/challenging and maybe impossible. Any less, and the result is a "practice painting" that stacks against the wall in a pile of things to get back to after I'm dead. After a few trips to Santa Fe and many evenings of shooting sunrise and sunsets over the Sangre de Christo mountains, I thought this might be the most impossible painting choice- and that decided it.
