Work in progress

There has always been something very meaningful to me about New Mexico and the indigenous architecture throughout the state. I seem to want to return often to this part of the country. Call me a romantic but, as much as I like five star hotels and great urban cities, spending time out west always reinforces those feelings of remaining somewhat childlike, what enchantment is all about. This painting is 18 x 24, oil with knife. I intend to finish this painting in the next couple weeks and posting once more, the final product. It will be for inventory build up for gallery submission. In the meantime, in case you are interested, email me to bid on this piece.
