Pequeño Grande means Little Big in Spanish. This work is an abstracted view from the bottom of the Rio Grande canyon near Taos. The river here is still small, as is the gorge. It was a gorgeous, sunny, fall day with a toasty breeze I reveled in. I sketched numerous canvases there and brought them back to detail in my Denver studio. In this painting, the midground rock formations were backed by the more solid canyon wall, shown in deep indigo, which was capped with a smarmy indigo beret I accented with orange sandstone shapes. The vegetation and fallen rock are scribbled with soft charcoal, and you'll find the pastel pigment deep and rich over top the complex glazed layers of acrylic paint. Pequeño Grande may be little, but it's impact is big.
This canvas is mounted on 1-1/2" deep museum stretchers which are painted as 3D extensions of the main image.
