I began this painting a few days ago and finished it today. I had a lot of fun making this piece - lately I have been enjoying the mix of representation and abstraction. Drawing has been at the forefront of my thoughts and I spent a lot of time on the underlying drawing for this painting, which utilizes the standard convention of two point perspective.

"Seeing double:
The sun-baked wall of another casita
Reflected in a mirror of standing water.

And line like bone that bears the weight of beauty." -Gwen Bindas
