I painted this scene a couple of weeks ago in oil on location in the cool, hip village of Madrid, New Mexico. I also took photos, most of which were pretty spectacular. This one however, was not. It was overexposed and after I printed it, I got paint all over it. BUT, I always think of Madrid as colorful and beautiful - a really fun place to go on a day trip. So, I improvised and embellished. And I consider this acrylic version, "MY MADRID," the real one because this is how I see it. Colorful, kind of like a circus, and somewhere you just go to hang out, shop, and get away for the day.
I will not have a new daily painting post until Sunday night or Monday. Enjoy your weekend!
