Southwest ~ Mexican Folk Art ~ RoMy Original Paintings
Title: "Desert Sunrise"
Size: 12" x 9" (on gallery-wrapped CANVAS ~ ready to display!)
Hola! Muchos Gracias for stopping by my Terlingua Art Studio near Terlingua Ghost Town & Big Bend National Park (Texas) along the Old Mexico Border! For your consideration today I am offering this original painting with NO RESERVE:
The setting is Old Mexico ~ the sun is on the rise ~ and the desert floor is all aglow ~ there is no prettier time of day in the desert than the early morning hour! Sitting on the sill of this arched window are several lovely Talavera pots filled with cactus and the flowers are opening to the light of day ~ overhead is a hanging basket also filled with beautiful flowers.
The aura surrounding this painting is soothing to the soul. And the colours are gorgeous! Lovely shades of purple, turquoise, blue, green, red, gold, yellow, and coral ~ a combination which will complement the colour scheme of most any home! This piece will make a wonderful addition to anyone's collection of folk art!
This Mexican/Southwest folk art painting is an ORIGINAL work of art, brightly painted with acrylics on a professionally stretched, gallery wrapped canvas. This premier canvas is tightly wrapped & tucked around a very well-made, quality wooden frame with no side staples ~ and all four sides have been painted so that it is ready for you to immediately display & enjoy just as quickly as you receive it (no additional framing is necessary) ~ and a hanger is already attached! Also this piece has been finished with two coats of a non-yellowing acrylic varnish to protect and enhance its beauty for many years to come. The front of this painting is signed by the artist, and the back is signed, titled and dated (2009). The measurements are 12" x 9".
This original painting is a wonderful treasure to collect for yourself ~ but it would also make a great gift! Think Christmas!!
The artist ~ RoMy ~ that's me! I live on the border between Texas and 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)
I enjoyed the visit ~ Gracias! And, please, while you are here take a moment to
