Assumption of The West over the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, New Mexico. Acrylic on Panel. 36" x 48" 2014
My windows for painting open and close sporadically, and I've learned to just jump in on something that I find inspiring and 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.
