Sundown Sunday Giveaway!

This is a painting I am donating to a lucky winner for The Sundown Sunday Giveaway. This is an original oil painting on gallery wrapped canvas that is 8 x 24. I can see this propped on a bookshelf, over a doorway. Think of new places to hang art. It is very interesting to see a work of art, where you do not expect it!

So you actually have until Next Sunday the 22nd at 10 pm to submit. Tell what you did over this time period to "Pay it Forward" in any little or big way! Don't wait though because everyone will love to see your replies!

PS The shades are just a tad more intense I could not adjust the hue with my camera though.

Red River on my Mind

I am often asked where the idea for a painting came from. My answer is that often it is in my mind. Sometimes I will start with a photo from a place visited, or a tear sheet from a magazine. Then at times it will take changes in form and color palette.

This painting I am adding texture in the lower section, so it may still evolve a bit. It is fun though to see where it goes, the direction it could take.
