Path behind Sandia

Path behind Sandia

5x7in   oil on canvas board      90.

The stunning Sandia Mountains in Albuquerque, N.M. have many walking and hiking areas. This path leads to the handicap area on the east side of the mountain. It is a beautifully maintained area with paved paths for wheelchair access. I love this place because I feel very strongly about how important it is to have outdoor wheelchair access in as many places as possible. This is from personal experience because my aunt, who lived with us was in a wheelchair, and on our walks we found many places we had to turn around because it would be inaccessible. She would be so disappointed and I would feel soooo inadequate and frustrated.

Artist Note:

A palette knife was used for most of this.  I used my wonderful Holbein -  series S. I have several sizes and shapes but on a small piece like this I use #33. It is perfect, very flexible and I can mush flat areas or get texture and curved thin lines.
