The Landscape: New Work
This is an oil landscape on board, in progress--will be shipping it to Patricia Carlisle Fine Art in Santa Fe, New Mexico after I get the drill out and attach a plein air frame. At this point, my intuition is telling me to quit: so I've buffed a thin layer of cold wax over it, and will let it sit. In putting pieces in a visible spot, they speak more to me about when 'done'. Like life, I just go with the flow, and the art takes me where it wants to go--I'm just a conduit, a messenger.
"If you catch a fragrance of the unseen,
like that, you will not be able
to be contained.
You will be out in empty sky.
Any beauty the world has, any desire,
will easily be yours.
As you live deeper in the heart,
the mirror gets clearer and cleaner." ~ Rumi
