I may have posted this painting in another forum a while back, but I just wanted to brag cuz it just won 1st Place in the oils category in a juried show.:smug: It also won Second Best of Show, and it's sold! I took 2nd Place in oils with a nude. Happy day.

I love it Coyote! And can just picture the dust trail behind the truck...

I hope your nude had fewer cacti though.:lol:

It's wonderful, Todd... You definitely deserve bragging rights!!! Can you tell us which juried show so that maybe some can visit it in the 'flesh'?

Absolutely captures the scene, I can smell the clean air and feel the breezes, and feel the jolts! Of course this was a winner, what else could it be.
congratulations on all the awards and the sale, feels s0-00-00 good doesn't it?

Coyote--nice piece! Congrats on the win. (I can't tell if Sweet Pea is on a dirt road or if s/he is totally four-wheelin' it!)

Coyote - Congrats!!! Nice work indeed! Very deserving!

Wow, congratulations, this is a wonderful piece! :thumbsup: This scene reminds me of the time my husband and I went looking at "cheap" property in Kingman, AZ. The realators SUV was a pretty sturdy trooper getting us through and in and out and around the so called "roads". :rolleyes: Mind you this was my idea, and I really learned about desert property that day!

I love the composition of this piece, and how you've captured the haze in the background, which is exactly how it is out there! Esp. on a windy, dusty day!

Thank you for sharing!

Thanks for all the nice comments.
The show will be up through December 16th at the Lakes & Valleys Gallery in Lake Hughes, California. There's a map somewhere on our out of date and horribly maintained website: www.lakesandvalleysartguild.com

There was no road in this picture, just desert.
