|Santa Elena Quiet 8x10 Oil|
The one here was done in the afternoon at Santa Elena Canyon. The scale of the place is massive. The canyon walls ascend hundreds of feet above Terlingua Creek. I did a morning painting of the canyon from further back to take in the entire opening, which I'll show you soon, but in this one I wanted to get an up close, more intimate impression. It was mid-day, sparkling light, wonderfully fresh air and the silence was as massive as the canyon itself.
Well, it's time to make order out of the studio, again, after being gone so long.
