Greetings Friends. My Wife Heather will shortly begin a great career opportunity in Maryland.
I will stay on here in New Mexico to wrap things up, but expect to join her no later than next spring. Our time in Las Cruces influenced my active return to painting and this High Desert river valley has been my partner in pallette and imagery. Thanks for the opportunity to collaborate with you all on Wide Bay, High Desert, Part I. Thanks especially to Catherine at the Unsettled Gallery for her encouragement and support.
So – the picture above was made during the last few weeks of waiting to find out if we might be relocating to the Wide Chesapeake Bay. 20″ square, acrylic and drawing with touches of collage and spray paint. I think that it looks pretty optimistic.
Formally it is based on about one 15th of another recent painting, detail here:
Still around here for a while, but seemed like a good time to say thanks. CC
