|The Long Return|
The above is the painting for which I did the study that just won second place in the Moreno Valley Arts Council Winter Invitational Exhibit. I had not finished it when the submission deadline rolled around. It isn't easy keeping up with show submissions especially this time of the year. I did include this piece with the five I submitted to the Old Pass Gallery in Raton for their New Mexico Women Artists show in March. I was accepted and now it is narrow the five done to three. Favorites have nothing to do with this process.
Another aspect of my choice is what one judge called geo-spacial cultural dynamic. Raton has a different one than I do where I live or where I am inspired. So I am going with the cliff dwellings and three different treatments.
