#48 "TAOS MAIN STREET HOLLIES"

"TAOS MAIN STREET HOLLIES"
10x8"
oil on canvas

This painting is done from an image taken when I was cruising 
down the main street of Taos, New Mexico, one late afternoon.

The fading light on the hollyhocks was beautiful.

I did quite a bit of using paint to cut into the flowers. 
My favorite part of the painting are the tiny bits of Old Holland's Violet Grey 
in the shadows of the largest flower.

This painting is included in my November show at Sumner and Dene Gallery,
"PAINTING THE NORTH."
