Big Bend 12"x16" acrylic #358
I have been traveling for the last few weeks, first to Quebec then to NC. When I arrived in the south, I was sneezing etc., and thought it was allergies, but found out soon enough that I had a really bad cold. As a result, I didn't do anything but paint with my mom when I felt up to it. My mother is 87 years old and she paints almost every day. She had been working from a photo on this beautiful scene of Big Bend Park and finished it while I was visiting, so I did a small quick version of it early on (mine is the first photo). My mom was a huge help all week in critiquing my work. Her style, approach, materials, tools and surface are different than I normally use, so I had some obstacles to adjust to, but it was a fun process. Her painting is 30" by 40" and is destined for a chiropractic office in Colorado.
