Abandon Sunset


Today I was in my studio looking for a reference for clouds (yes guys, I'm painting today - yea!) and I ran across this old picture that I took in the early 1980's. It was in the New Mexico State Fair Amature Photography exhibit too.

I thought I'd post it - this sunset was shot through an adobe wall of a long ago abandoned building in El Cerro , New Mexico.

The photo is stunning..particularly the way the light just tickles the edge of those clouds...by-the-way, your previous painting, "Puerta de Luna" is in my opinion a break through piece, I would love to see more of this, it's spectacular. it has that perfect balance of looseness but representational that I think alot of us strive for, very well done.

Sincerely.
best,
Todd

Thank you Todd - I appreciate your visit and your comment. I am trying to force myself to paint thicker and looser - its a struggle for me. Old habits are so hard to break. Thanks again - Cara
