Ghost Ranch Skull 20"x20" $525

My first painting since the Ghost Ranch workshop.  I am seeing a new boldness.  Not so timid with the brush and am liking the texture.  I spackled the underpainting with gesso and a pallatte knife and that gives it a real adobe feeling!  Will probably make a few adjustments.  For instance, I am now seeing the cracks in the adobe wall to the left of the skull are too evenly spaced,  giving a" railroad track" look, so will change that.

Had a good day at the Wimberly Gallery.  Had a good crowd and I sold two paintings! One was  a wine painting and the other was a Willow City cow.
