Best Day

Best Day
16" x 20" Oil on RayMar Cotton Panel
Contemporary Landscape Painting
On a recent trip to Santa Fe, John Wyne and I took the High Road to Taos and drove through a wonderful part of New Mexico.  The long and winding road took us through some amazing countryside.  One of my favorite things to photograph is old churches, missions and cemeteries.  The wildflowers were scattered through the cemetery, which was located next to a country church on top of a hill.  The old stones and graves have character, making it a great subject to paint.  The day after we returned to Dallas from the trip, I had to paint the scene while it was fresh in my mind.
Here it is framed up in a new Randy Higbee Gallery Frame.  The moulding is 3 1/2 inches wide, so total framed piece is 22 1/2" x 26 1/2" with a rubbed grey stain and gold lip. This painting is hanging in the studio...if you have any questions or comments, please contact ME.  Thanks for looking at this blog....have an artful day.  Kay
