Terlingua Joe

"Terlingua Joe"
Size: 6x6 inches
Medium: acrylic on panel
Genre: Figure

Recently, Austin actor Greg Holt modeled for our figure session, wearing his cowboy outfit. Just for fun, I put him in the Terlingua Ghost Town, which we visited on a recent trip to Big Bend National Park out in west Texas. The ghost town is mixed in with modern buildings, which gives the place an eerie yet funky and charming feeling. The old ruins were originally a mining town for mercury mines.

I'm having a great time exploring new concepts and ideas in painting.  I plan to do more West Texas themes.
