Lookout - Study
Observed in the distance, struck by the asymmetry and weariness. Painted by the fireplace the last cool evening in Twisp.
Acrylic on Canvas Paper
11.5” x 8.5”
The trees of Twisp, were observed on a solitary hike, while participating in a show at Confluence Gallery. During the time of Covid, solitary wanderings were common for many; this hike in particular found sentinals, lone watchers of the trails.
These paintings embrace bold and expressive color to punctuate each tree’s story and create a sense of movement or vibrancy within a moment. The portraits are also a response to our nature of ‘seeing’, of being observers of nature, each other, and ourselves.
