"THE ROAD TO TUCUMCARI"

Oh! How I do love New Mexico. Over the years I have painted the “Blue Swallow” so many times, yet with each time, it’s like painting it for the first time. There is always something new to discover in the process, for one the skies in New Mexico are fantastic, one couples that with great natural and manmade architecture and you cant loss playing with the senses. In painting this, I really had little to do with it, this great motel is setting there with this sky as its backdrop I felt my job was done, after all I got the paints, couple a brushes, Birch wood panel and voilĂ  a painting… The "Blue Swallow Motel" is on Rout 66, a must stop for any traveler. This painting is in oils on Birch paneling with no framing needed, the size is 8x6 inches:  (SOLD)
