Rock and Sky

May 1, 2018

We live in a very rocky place.  Our house is situated just below a mountain ridge that is home to native varieties of cactus, sagebrush, tumbleweed, and the domain of Chukar Partridges, mule deer, black bear, a variety of hawks and owls, and the occasional Cougar.

Painting rocky scenes is something particularly satisfying due to the artistically-geometric shapes which become something of a foil for the full-blown and free-flowing movement of cloud and sky.

This was simply an experiment–discovering where shapes and natural design and configuration would lead–a painting begun without knowing where it might end.

  2. I’ve been away from my blog for a long time as well — I understand completely. I’ve missed seeing your work and was tickled when you posted. I hope to get back into the groove soon, too.

  4. Beautiful. Discovering the little cottages on the right was a delight and made the painting even more precious, in my opinion.
