Let the beauty we love be what we do. ~Rumi ~


This project was a fun challenge. I worked with an Art Consultant from Atlanta. Our client loved the oil painting on the left (40X40) but needed a larger work. I really like this ocher and blue color palette so it was a real treat to work out the composition and create a second work that  complimented the first. I know how important the paintings are to me that I live with so I like to honor a collectors request particularly regarding scale . The wrong size work makes everything look wrong. The reference for this image was from a  photo safari, an outing that I took when I was in Taos, New Mexico for a painting work shop in September. I like changing the colors of the landscape shapes and making them somewhat unexpected. I will see if Kimberly will send me a photo of the installation to share at a later date.
