6x6in oil on canvas board $85.
This abandoned building was about two miles from the Nichols Ranch
and we stopped to photograph it on the way home.
The light hitting the roof made for a really bright spot against the
soft shadows of the hillside.
In a small, square format it is hard to place a building and not
have it kerplunk in the middle. I think this piece works though because of
repeating some angles...the hillside bushes, the lean-to,
green bushes and the fence..
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.
