Irrigating the Pecan Orchard.
Irrigating the Pecan Orchard
6x8in oil on canvas panel $100.
I have painted the orchards quite a few times. Achieving the water
reflections can be a daunting task as all the trees
are planted in straight rows, but the trunks are apt to
lean in slightly different directions.
This is an emergency fill-in for a painting I worked on for many hours
today and then dropped it because I tripped as I was moving over to where
I take photographs. My dog - called Kat, rushed over thinking
I was throwing a Frisbee. Get the picture. Think of a Blue Heeler with red, green
and multicolored patches over her face.
It shows the magnitude of my love for Kat that she is still alive, but her ears
are set backwards and she looks quite dejected... most likely with my screams
of, drop it, drop it NOW, still ringing in her ears!
OR maybe it was the shampoo used to wash her face and neck.
If something like this has happened to you, please make me feel better
and share your own stories.
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.
