Just a friendly reminder that if you are local to Abilene and have been meaning to catch my exhibit at The Center for Contemporary Art, it closes Saturday, January 30th at 5:00. Many many thanks to all who have already seen it! You have been incredibly kind and supportive and I can't express how much it means to me. Below are all of the paintings that were in the show. Most are just partial views of the painting so if you want to see full images you can go to my website, http://pollyjonesart.com There is also an exhibit statement on that page.

|Road to Abilene by Polly Jones|
|detail of Road to Abilene by Polly Jones|
Here is my version of what I saw while driving one late afternoon on the road from Abilene to Brownwood. Mesquite trees against clouds...I wanted to capture the grey with all of the more subtle bits of color going on. I went a little crazy with the thick paint and using my squeegee tool. It has graph paper and a bit of map as a part of the layering with text from vintage books and paint. This didn't really capture what I saw so I'll have to have another go. The challenge and possibility of getting it next time is why I keep painting.
