at gallery
I did a larger painting like this for my last art show and wanted to revisit it for a couple of reasons. First, it is SO New Mexico - the adobe house with the tin roof, the field of cosmos and the stand of sunflowers in the background. Plus all of the cottomswood and greenery. I wanted to see what it would look like as a daily painting and a 150 Challenge painting. I'm also working on a commission of this subject for one of my very good friends. I thought about trying to paint it just like the painting from the art show, but ended up working from the original photograph, because I wanted it to be fresh and spontaneous. So I have three versions going of the same subject. That may seem like an "assembly line" process, but it's not. At some point, the photograph gets put away and I work on each painting individually, giving it the little tweaks that make it unique. This is the first of three. I will post the others tonight.
