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.

Artist Note:

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.

  1. I know exactly here you're coming from, although I HAVE almost given up recently!

  2. It looks like the sun is really glowing behind those clouds in the painting. Wow.
