[caption id="attachment_9582" align="alignleft" width="442" caption="I created this painting during my personal 'Painting-a-week' challenge earlier this year. I was inspired by some Navajo textiles I saw at the DeYoung Museum and was reminded of the Native American themed airport dolls and jewelry my dad used to bring me from his business trips to Indian Reservations across the country.

the Plein Heir Catalog- pp. 3 & 4

  En plein air is the style of painting made popular by the Impressionists who began experimenting with color, light and brush strokes and mood as they sat outside painting and taking in a view. When I look out to pastoral scenes I see stripes of color stacking one on top of the other as the colors fade to shadowy forms. That's the idea I like to evoke with these 'Torn Landscape' motifs. They're a departure from the rest of the collection, but certainly a reflection of the Plein Heir brand.                               The pink lattice floral pattern is surprisingly versatile as it can be used horizontally...
