"VIEW FROM THE TOP"
8"X10"
The second of my plein air paintings. This is a view sitting at the trailhead looking down below. You can see the foliage in the foreground; chamisa, sage, etc. Then the darker areas of the pinon trees. Right after that, there is a huge drop off to the valley below and you can see the sun barely glinting off off the buildings and streets. I love this kind of work. I would love to have a big pick-up truck or camper and just travel New Mexico and paint HUGE plein air paintings outside.
If you are interested in this painting or any of the future plein air work I might do, feel free to email me.

I really like your style of painting. This painting is so interesting with the different layers of foreground and background. And I love all the reds peeking through. Really nice!
