Southwestern contemporary original painting that captures the desert heat, light and wide open spaces.
This is a 40 x 30 acrylic painting on canvas.
I go to the desert to descover myself, time and the essence of things and where I fit. The majesty so quiet but grand holds the answer that I am a small part of a great landscape called LIFE.
I overexposed the desert sand to create the contrast of heat and light on the ground compared to the cool sky existing above.
I used dozens of brushes from smooth to brittle and pallete knives to create the crust like edges in the sand. I also used cloth to work the clouds to soften the scene.
