This painting has been in progress for some time. Each time I make changes leading to more changes. It has a bit of a Southwestern feeling along with a touch of the mystics, a part of the place where I live and a part of what I read. Dead Souls by Gogol is my current read--a novel of 19th century Russia by one of Russia's foremost literary geniuses. Who know what the next changes will be comprised of? Since I am painting this piece from some place deep within my unconscious, anything might appear.
