Oil on Paper Mounted on Panel / 6 x 6 Inches

Whenever I pass through Gallup, New Mexico, I always stop to take a few photographs along the main drag, Railroad Avenue (Old Route 66). A favorite spot is Richardson's Trading Post and Pawn. There's no other place like it. Old Pawn Jewelry, Navajo rugs, Kachinas, Guns and Saddles, Buckskins and Hides, Basketry, they have it all, and a lot of it.

Their windows look like they haven't been touched in a hundred years, yet they are different every time I visit. They are always good for subjects to feed my found still lifes series. Many of the paintings and photographs you've seen on my daily blogs were inspired by the content of those windows.

Today's painting of Acoma pots and a hand carved Navajo caraciture figure is a case in point. As is today's photograph.

One thought on “RICHARDSON’S / Daily Painting #1025

  1. I like this one. The subject’s peculiarities are deliberately exaggerated to produce a comic effect showing they have a sense of humor. Makes me smile looking at it.
