Painting Arizona: Camelback Mountain Timelapse Painting

Sometimes the canvas holds the painting, and you have to uncover it. 

That was the case with this piece. I had held onto this 4 foot piece of reclaimed wood for a while, forgot about it, and when I pulled it back out again I knew it was just waiting to be a mountain landscape. 

Of course Camelback Mountain is one of my favorite subjects. I can see the tip from my driveway, and get a gorgeous look at it every time I ride my bike in my neighborhood or go for a drive. It has such a special presence in the valley, and I have learned how grounded being surrounded by the mountains makes me feel. 

I am excited to share the painting process of this piece with you today! Click below to watch my video:

Does any part of your landscape make you feel like home? 

Thank you for letting me share this piece with you today! It is now available in my shop, and I can't wait for a collector to be the new owner of this special piece.

ootd intro I rode my bike out to the desert today, which is basically my backyard, and it was gorgeous! The location is awesome with the Papago Buttes in one direction and Camelback mountain in the other. I brought my camera along and decided to turn my outing into an outfit post!

Today I wanted to style these amazing liquid leggings that I recently got at Wal-Mart of all places. I've been wanting some "leather" leggings and I really love these because they also have a snakeskin print. I paired them with an oversized tank because they are shiny and tight, and topped it off with my DIY Camo Vest that you may recognize from my tutorial.
