I’ve been obsessed with the work that Brent Underwood has been doing at the mining ghost town of Cerro Gordo. He purchased the town a few years ago, but moved into it to be its sole caretaker during the pandemic and has been posting weekly videos on YouTube ever since. During my #the100daysofmornings project, I was so taken by one of the sunrise shots in a video that I knew I had to paint it. I hope this painting can one day have its own home in Cerro Gordo.
