I find myself alternating between close-up, more abstract images from the landscape and stepped back views. Understanding the details and perspective of the grand view seems to “ground” me, and also informs my interpretation of reality and freedom to invent. Homage is a recent painting that honors ancient mountains and the tremendous forces that erode them. It also contrasts the delicacy of trees clinging to the granite with the rough, fractured rock  and silken water. The close-up details below show the use of monoprint techniques to build textures that suggest stone or foliage. Enjoy!
