July 30 – Acrylics class at Austin Contemporary, we were to attempt any kind of abstract painting. I wanted to practice with textures using palette knives and also try laying down masking tape as stencils to create some sharp contrast lines. I didn’t really have an image in mind for the end product but I worked on it until I liked what I had. I finished after class, late the next night. After it was done, it reminded me of the Davis Mountains in West Texas near Alpine so that is how named it. The Davis Mountains/Transpecos area of West Texas is one of my favorite places on earth.
