Taos September is my painting of memories of walking in Taos last fall.  The weather was super and the flowers were in bloom.  I love to work from the heart and that is what this represents.  It makes me happy.  It is acrylic on canvas. 

I still need to crop this one!  This is what happens when I am in a hurry.  I actually have worked on this over a period of time and wanted to look at it on my blog.  It has textures that are created using tissue paper collage and painting over the new surface.  It is mixed media because not only did I use the tissue paper, but I worked with both acrylic and watercolor.  Whatever it takes is my thinking.  American Rural Textures is the title of this painting.

I lived in Arizona long enough that I am comfortable with the shapes that define the southwest.  The large saguaro reminds of the landscapes that I grew to love.  Now in Texas, I enjoy the beautiful old live oaks and the many varieties of wildflowers.  Looking at this painting brings back happy memories.  I hope you like it.
