1965 "Tucson Brick Works"

" Patagonia, Arizona" 1966, acrylic on canvas, 3 feet by 5 feet, at "Rain's" Tucson home
This is one of the first watercolors I did when my husband was going to graduate school at the University of Arizona. It is now in "Rain's" collection and has the honor of being hung in her Tucson home. I have just packed my watercolors as well as my acrylics for our trip south to Arizona.
Thank you "Rain" for supplying me with these excellent photographs of my work. After not seeing these paintings for a long time and it is important for me to see them to see the direction of my development.

A photograph doesn't do this painting justice. It has all of the feeling of old Tucson, a world that is fast fading away with new buildings and new developments. It's difficult to capture the feeling of any painting when it's in a photo

The frame on the brick factory painting is shinney enough to be overly dominate in aphotograph. Photographs make shiny objects more contrasty. I am going to try to crop the photo of the brick factory.
