Left Over From Last Week
This is the first painting I did last Wednesday in Zapata. It is 12"x16" and I was just able to take a photo of it today. The documenting photo of the view is in last week's posting "From Conejos in the West ...". On that day, I was pretty happy with this and not so happy with the piece that depicted my view of the Dunes. As I reflect on them now, after the fact, I think I really like the view of the Dunes better. The brushwork seems a little more spontaneous; maybe because I was rushing to get it done before my umbrella blew away with my easel attached or before I got sunstroke, which would have been as a result of not being able to get my stupid umbrella to do anything but give me grief.
