The Landscape: New Work
“I am a forest, and a night of dark trees: but he who is not afraid of my darkness, will find banks full of roses under my cypresses.” ~ Nietzsche
This is one of many new landscapes I've worked on with oil and cold wax finish, either on linen or gessoboard. Some have been sent out to Santa Fe, to the Patricia Carlisle Gallery, and some are being worked on now. Also, I just finished up a bamboo grove: a commissioned painting where the buyer has been willing to let me do my thing, without heavy demands or a forced viewpoint. By going with the flow, and letting the paintbrush find the way, it's become a beautiful piece!
