sunset orange, green, and grey

 "Lovely in the middle"
acrylic on masonite, 11x14"
This painting was inspired by those beautiful old linen postcards of American West deserts, with their hot pink skies, cacti in many shades of green, and the vibrant printing that made these colors so. I imagined a girl in grey and silver against such bright colors.
I hope you're all having a beautiful New Year!
xo, Amanda
