Day’s End

This group of cottonwood trees is something I just can’t resist shooting any time I pass it on my way to Albuquerque. I decided to add a hint of a campfire to thescene by moving a spot of light from the setting sun, using TouchRetouch’s clone stamp and painting over it a little using the healing tool and the dodge and burn tool in Snapseed.

JUST ANOTHER NEW MEXICO SUNSET

SUMMER IN PROVENCE / Daily Painting #1316

Summer in Provence / Oil on Paper Mounted on Panel / 6 x 6 Inches / Click on the Image to Enlarge

I had just finished teaching a workshop at the 17th Century farmhouse, le Petit-Rousset just outside Eymet, France, five years ago, and was on my way from Bordeaux to Arles to see the Gypsies at Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer and the white horses of the Camargue, when I spotted this scene from the window of the train. Since then, I have come across it several times while browsing through my research. Every time, I have wanted to paint it. I even tried it once in watercolor and made a real mess of it. But today, when I saw it again, i knew its time had come. And I knew it had to be an oil. So I did it, and I think I finally got it.

Today’s painting is available to the highest bidder. Bidding will end 24 hours after the painting is posted to this blog.


Following the 24 hour bidding, if unsold, it will be available for $300 USD until it goes into a gallery, where the full retail price will be $650 USD.

This is but one of three thousand hand carved masks on display in the fabulous Rafael Coronel Museum in Zacatecas, Mexico. I first discovered the museum in 2001, and have spent many days there, since then, photographing and sketching and wandering the halls and grounds of the beautiful, partially restored former Convent of San Francisco.
