Mesilla Barn, New Mexico.
Mesilla Barn, New Mexico
6x8in oil on canvas panel 100.
This was obviously painted during the summer. Leaves on the trees being the first clue!
This was painted plein air with brush and the palette knife was used for the texture of the plowed soil.
I still remember very clearly how amazing the reflected blue from the sky was
as it hit the metal roof in the shadow areas.
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.
