As I go off in search of new endeavors, I made the difficult choice to stop painting for now. Even so, I wanted to complete one last one before leaving Denver this week. I used all of my remaining supplies, and the result is both vibrant and rustic. I played a lot with water, leaving large areas of texture. I then color washed and applied an old serial number plate I found on abandoned railroad tracks, which wraps around the edge of the canvas.
