Acrylic on canvas. This original painting suggests blue sky, sun, heat, rising from the earth in the Southwest. It shows hints of yellows and red columns of rising air. The painting is done in an abstract style with hundreds of small vertical paint strokes. It is inspired by Joan Mitchell, abstract expressionist painter painting from the 1960s to the 1980s. The colors are pastels, primarily baby blue, off white, pale yellow, light pink and magenta. It is ready to hang on the wall.
