Chain Fruit Cholla


oil on linen

This work was done plein air outside of Scottsdale Arizona. The Cholla is a beautiful element of the colorful desert floor. Although I painted this for a show, it never made the final cut.

Hello,

Great paint! Nice colors!

Thanks for your visit in my blog and the kind words.

The name "Atacama" in my post is reference to atacama┬┤s desert in the north of Chile, which have a beautifull landscape.

Have a nice Sunday

Broady, Shelly and Maricio-

Thanks for the words of encouragement.

Yes, something did go awry in the painting. A painting is done though, when one takes it from the easel and flings it behind him.

(see Somerset Maughams "The Moon and Sixpence.")

I can't believe it didn't make the final cut. It's absolutely gorgeous! Love your colors! YOu must have studied at one of the California Impressionist schools. That's the technique I'm trying to learn right now.

(Found your blog because you left a comment on my painting at Art Blog challenge. Thanks so much for the compliment!)
