Amy's art in progress.

Next I am going to paint another circle painting from my Spring Break fun @ Big Bend National Park!






Today I made a sketch of my next painting.  It is going to be a painting of Ocotillo plants in front of Cerro Castellan Peak at Big Bend National Park.  The peak reaches an altitude of 3,293 ft. and stands 1,030 ft. above the road. The peak itself is a volcanic vent and it is capped by a rhyolite dome.  So that is your geology lesson of the day.  Carry on.


Take a look @ Star of Hope Project!



I took a little break on this one to work on a commissioned design project for Star of Hope's Transitional Living Center here in Houston.  



Today I started painting Castellan Peak.   So far so good. :)



Today I added some purpley mountains in the background.

PS- 5.12.2009 My grandmother died so I will be taking a break from painting for a few days.


Today I added a bunch of red and orange.


Today I changed the color to the hills in the middle ground.
