This is a large oil, 40" x 30" on 2" deep Ampersand cradled board. It's heading for The Legacy Gallery's annual group show Legacy of the Southwest which opens in Scottsdale on July 7th. I would love to do a series of large.......I mean large paintings of agave and saguaro. The big bold shapes make for exciting compositions and the textures of these plants intrigue me - especially the saguaro. But paintings of agave and saguaro aren't new for me - I often painted them back in the days when I was a watercolorist.
