Color Crush 24″ x 24″


The colors of Fall flung across the hills and mountains of uncrowded places take my breath away. This original mixed media painting was created with layers of charcoal, graphite, watercolor, collage and glowing acrylic.
See canvas shipping options below.

There are places in the mountains I like to go where the edges of the world seem so far away. The sky goes up forever and the horizon smudges to shades of dusky blue. Stillness descends and for a while, quietens my mind. Fresh air scours the soot of stress and smells like peace.

This is essence I try to distill in my mountain landscapes. I like to paint in multiples and this piece was painted along with two others in the midst of the most stunning Fall I experienced in North Carolina, Connecticut, and the Wachau Valley in Austria.

I began with rough charcoal and graphite sketches and marks, added layers of collage and pigment, as I traced my memories onto the canvas. It is always delightful to see the scene emerge, a translation of the imperfectly perfect beauty I witnessed and wish to share with you.
