Mirage, 40 x 90 inches (triptych), acrylic & mixed media on panel. ©2017 Deidre Adams, all rights reserved.
While I was working on this painting, I was thinking a lot about language and mark-making, not at all about water or gardens, but sometimes the result is a surprise to me.

Mirage is included in the Experimental Surroundings exhibition on view through November 4 at Walker Fine Art, 300 W. 11th Avenue, Denver, Colorado.

And finally, here’s me with it at the gallery so you can get an idea of the size.
