Curator's Note: I love that only the central belt of this painting bears texture. This focal point draws the eye in as a point of interest.
The reason I chose the title for this piece is because somehow it reminds me of the old west -- earthy, deeply textured and rugged.
I created this piece with a series of glazes including deep grey, brown, gold and white. The center area is very textured. This has a series of under painting and over painting with acrylics.

KR Moehr is an artist in Tucson, AZ. Originally from Michigan, I spent many happy hours roaming through the Detroit Institute of Art (DIA) and marveling at masterpieces and developing a true love for art. I eventually earned a B.A. in Communications and worked in marketing/communications for automotive suppliers in suburban Detroit. Eventually, I moved west to rainy/quirky Portland, OR and lived there for several years during which I first picked up a paintbrush to record a particularly lovely watercolor sunset. It was awful; I was hooked. My life journey took me to my current home in sunny Arizona where I love to try to capture some of the natural desert beauty and amazing sky shows we get. After working to learn and hone my artistic skills, I now paint mostly in the abstract expressionist style and enjoy working with textured art. My media of choice is acrylics or water-based oils.
