Mission Blue

Acrylic on Panel

This is a thin slice of the mission at Santa Inez, I think.

I was inspired by seeing some Georgia O'Keeffe paintings at MOMA. There were a lot of her pieces that broke all the commonly held conventions of composition – just a tiny sliver of sky, a close-up of an architectural detail, a centered subject etc.

the simplicity of this painting is very powerful....keep that paint flowing.
