Purple Mountain Majesties
Purple Mountain Majesty
6x8in oil in canvas SOLD
This is another beautiful sky over the Organ Mountains, here in Las Cruces, NM.
I love the song, "America The Beautiful" It says it all.
I spent another day struggling over the same painting as yesterday. Still not right. The fourth, I repeat...the fourth wipe off! Imagine, all this angst on a painting only 7x5in.
You may wonder why am I still persisting? It is because I am learning so much with all these errors.
Any pressure? You betcha!
Feelings of not being a worthy artist? Yep - throw in the towel. Nah.
I am a painter living in Las Cruces, NM. After many years as an illustrator I turned to fine art to develop my own artistic voice. I currently teach talented and enthusiastic artists in oil, acrylic and egg tempera painting. I am also a member of the Artist Guild of Southern New Mexico.
