About this Artwork
This painting is within the "Survey" series format, yet derives its unique palette from an encounter with pottery seen at the Acoma Pueblo, in New Mexico.
This is one of only two paintings that reflect a specific source in that they refer to an actual place, rather than a generic memory.
