Sandia Range

We saw a giant frame in a dumpster a few years back and I have finally finished a piece for it. Its a straight forward graphic of the Sandia Mountain Range in New Mexico, where Sarah is from. I wanted to do it in a style that was very very simple, and this pretty much ended up being paint by numbers. We have 2 young kids, and my thinking was that they would appreciate that you could see detail and form even with simple color shapes. I think they like it OK.

This is the first canvas frame I ever built!

The picture frame has a unique aspect ratio (56X26) and needed a custom canvas. I used Birch. Here it is Stretched and mounted.

Here is my daughter Catarina with the outline before the painting started.
