Vigil, Felix – “Quiet Places” Mixed Media on Board
Felix Vigil is Jemez Pueblo and Jicarilla Apache. His paintings are typically mixed media on board. He applies layers of paper for texture then paints with acrylic. The result is a fluid surface that has texture the appearance of somewhere between watercolor and acrylic. This painting is entitled, “Quiet Places”. It has a landscape appearance. The sides of the painting are painted so it doesn’t require a frame. It is signed in the corner. Felix says of this painting:
Quiet Places is a contemplative painting. I love to go hiking into the mountains and mesas around my home and explore all that is there. There are endless seeds of inspiration in those places.
