Title: "Terlingua Golden"
Medium: Acrylic on Raymar panel
Size: 12x9 inches
Genre: Figure, Realism
Lately I'm pulled very strongly in the direction of realism. The idea for this one is the Terlingua Ghost Town of Terlingua, Texas. I've got a lot of photos of those old adobe ruins, and I've been wanting to populate them.
She's holding an apple, and I got to thinking how rare a crisp, juicy apple would be out in the summer heat of Terlingua in the 1930's. It would have to be imported from up north, and would no doubt be rather expensive.
