Jill McElmurry, Rio Grande, No. 2

Executed in a flat, illustrative style the painting features a curving white river with blue edges across the mid section. The river is flowing to the left. The foliage on the right is abstracted biomorphic forms. There are yellow pods, lavender branches, red willows and an orange leaf form at the upper right. The left bank is stony. The sky is pale blue above purple hills.
