My family used to live in Colorado. American Basin in mid-summer would frequently be in bloom with so many wildflowers that you'd just want to lay down in them - like Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz. They are magical. While this landscape is not faithful to that particular basin, the abundance of flowers is. I painted this 30 x 40 acrylic piece on a recycled canvas so you can see(check the closeup) bits of texture in places left over from the previous art. The sides are staple free and painted white.
