A plein Air painting done in May-June 2016.
Adobe by Night….
This painting came to me in a vision in my head. My mom doesn’t like it as it is too “modern,” and it is a wild child for me: an experimental piece. My realism and impressionist paintings did not get into this show, but this one did.
Last Train to Blanco
Entered into the Wimberley Valley Juried Gallery Show in Feb. 2017
I am torn between realism and experimental styles, so I’d have to define my interests as eclectic. From a photo I took of railroad tracks on the way to Blanco.
You never know what is going to get into a show. I had several completed paintings, but also entered this study of Tournon at Night.
This is the finished piece:
Photo taken south of Big Sur on the California Coast. The back lighting on the tree captured my eye. Used a base coat of orange to make the sky dynamic. It was accepted into the Summer Juried Gallery Show in Wimberley 2016.
