Title: La Mision (The Mission)
Size: 20" x 16" ~ Nice SiZe Canvas ~ Original
Hola! Muchas Gracias for stopping by my Terlingua Art Studio near Terlingua Ghost Town & Big Bend National Park (Texas) along the border of Old Mexico! For your consideration today I am offering this original painting:
"La Mision" (The Mission) is a beautiful blending of desert colour ~ gorgeous mountains (in shades of gold, purple and turquoise), a tiny mission far off in the distance and a pretty, red-haired senorita, drapped in a shawl and a mysterious air ~ headed out on a mission of her own....
Quote: Make your life a mission, not an intermission. -- Arnold Glasgow
This folk art painting is sure to add an aura of the Southwest and Old Mexico decor to anyone's casa ~ or office at work. And what a fabulous opportunity for the right buyer to add to his or her collection of Mexican Folk Art! Or start a collection! Mexican Folk Art is quite popular now ~ and increasing in value with time.

This premier frame has sturdy, precisely tailored corners and the canvas is tight with clean, staple-free edges ~ all four sides have been painted so that this piece can be displayed & enjoyed as soon as it arrives!

Also, this piece has been finished with several coats of non-yellowing acrylic varnish to protect and enhance its beauty for many years to come.
ABOUT THE ARTIST
The front of this painting is signed by the artist and the back is also signed, dated (2009) and titled. By the way the artist "Romy" - that's me! I live on the border between Texas and Old Mexico ~ near the Big Bend National Park ~ a few miles from Terlingua Ghost Town ~ and I love the history and culture of this area ~ a raw, still quite primitive land ~ a desert land where "rainbows wait for rain." The last few photos in this description show my outdoor studio which faces Santa Elena Canyon and the Rio Grande, the natural border between Old Mexico and Texas ~ and it is from this primitive setting ~ 80 miles from town ~ that I find most of my inspiration for painting. (in the photos Mexico is on the left side of the river and Texas is on the right)
