This expressive landscape painting was done in Hell's Backbone, part of the Grand Staircase of the Escalante National Monument in Utah. I was on top of the mountain looking down at the landscape. I could see forever! The dirt road cut through the landscape making interesting diagonals and divisions in the distance. The piece is painted with loose, lush brushstrokes. This artwork is on cradled birch panel and the painting continues around the sides. It comes varnished to a gloss finish, and it is ready to hang.

Getting to Know Peggy

Peggy is an impressionist landscape painter based in New Mexico. Her ongoing journey with art began as a small child. She was inspired by wonderful art teachers while growing up, and in turn decided to become an art teacher herself. Peggy spent most of her career shaping young artists at the advanced high school level, imparting values, strength and perseverance upon them. Now in retirement, Peggy has turned her energy to a full-time art career for the first time. She works in a loose, gestural style with brightly-toned layers of paint, capturing the colors and feelings of the southwest. When she’s not making art, she likes to go hiking around Taos, always seeking inspiration for her next painting.
