Wildflower Series 4, oil on canvas 25"x31"x1.5, 2021
Original oil on canvas with frame 25"x31"x1.5"
“Mountains stretch with the late sun,
Clouds evaporate and rain stop.”
Anyone familiar with the highway going west toward Vail, Colorado, drives past this location. In my interpretation the condominiums at the far side of the water do not appear. I emphasis shifts to the wildflowers in the foreground that catch the warm light which contrasts the cold blue mountain in the background.
I painted a small oil painting 12”x16” with the palette knife and then painted this one in my studio later.
