In the past year I spent time visiting Painted Hills, one of the more mysterious and striking landscapes of Eastern Oregon. I was deeply moved by my experience there, and painted several works large and small inspired by it. This is one of two remaining works from the series, attending to the unique range of color throughout the hours of the day in the Painted Hills. Landscape and nature fuels my painting process, and these little works are about loosely capturing the essence of the land.
Materials: acrylic paint, marker, pencil on gessoboard, unframed.
