"Colorado Layers"
24" x 6" mixed media on 1 3/4" cradled panel
$325.00 includes shipping in the US
sides stained to compliment







So this was a LOT OF FUN!...Using Grant Woods as my artist inspiration (in that he just layers one hill on top of another with bright color) I started at the top with Mt. Evans...
 I began to build my layers.  First I built up the mountain with molding paste...and painted my background; added a few bits of paper...and next was the middle...
I had fun putting in a bit of rock cliff as there are many around me...putting in some scrub oak (like ole Grant would have done) that are plentiful at the mouth of my canyon...WITH a few aspen peeking in there...which led me to the bottom...
which is reminiscant of "Golden Tops"...and seemed to be the perfect ending to my very FUN layers of the Colorado landscape that I LOVE!

I'm not finished with this long skinny layout...I have a Nebraska landscape in mind...and I'm sure another Colorado one to boot!  

HAPPY CREATING!

I think one of your most intricate and most beautiful mountainscape yet, Saundra! Truly, this is stunning!

Sandra...you have just taken flight with all your artwork...I remember almost two years ago when I started my writing blog, and we were going to collaborate...on discovering the purpose of our lives...but clearly, you have found your purpose. Your art work is just fantastic! So creative and unique. Did you know there is another water color artist with your name? Possibly it is why you use Lane....

I just wanted to compliment you and let you know how much I admire your work. I too like to paint, but my writing in my blog, mainly my poetry, appears to have taken top priority...

Whenever I come to visit, it inspires me and makes me want to paint... Have a GREAT weekend!

I like all these. Very auburn and meadowy. Definitely enjoying the fall motif.
