When I was going through my window and shutter phase, I executed this painting. The stucco on the wall of the building is applied with the palette knife. It has lots of texture. The grass, flowers and cactus were applied with the brush. I would say this painting has some boldness to it. It has a very handsome mahogany frame on it and hangs in the home of good friend Mark McDonald. So even though this painting is sold, I get to see it often!
