By Santa Fe artist MICHAEL MORROW (1950-2007), this is a 15 1/2" by 15 1/2" (25" by 25" in black frame and mat) original gouache of a black Southwestern pot (Santa Clara Pueblo?) in an extensive landscape, a classic butte at left. The detail and trompe l'oeil effect is impressive (note how he painted the rim chip and other chips in the pot). Morrow was born in Amarillo, Texas. After art education at the University of Texas at Austin and some time in Boulder, Colorado, he became active in the Santa Fe art scene in the mid 1970's, represented by Munson Gallery and Joan Cawley Gallery. During the 1980's and 1990's, his imagery was reproduced on t-shirts and other items. Morrow was also talented as a landscape architect, utilizing his artistic talents to arrange naturalistic forms. Sadly, he was diagnosed with a brain tumor and passed away shortly thereafter at the age of 57 in 2007. Condition is excellent. The work being loose in the frame, it might be advisable to remove the glass, or replace it with Plexi.
