Mornings down the hill are beautiful on a clear day. There is a magnificent lookout point that peers Mt. Hood from the distant horizon and the majestic colors from the rising sun. It’s gorgeous! That’s what #26 represents for me. I created it with my palette knife to abstract and texturize the moment.
San Francisco comes back for another painting. This time, I used my palette knife to create the beautiful vibrant sunrise. I love the texture the palette knife lends itself to with each stroke. The textures and bright colors totally rocks the city by the bay.
I’ve been creating these mountainscapes on three twelve inch boards as triptychs and this time I decided to paint them on one panel. I took a page from my friend, Hirofumi Glover, and created a border for all three paintings in the panel. What resulted was an amazing painting. I love that the mountains are much thicker than the borders, which makes the painting quite dimensional and textural.
