Horizon Calling

I was compelled to create a painting at a moment’s notice this week, and caught the whole thing on camera; interestingly, some of my favorite works were created in a short amount of time and with little effort.

This painting was created in response to hearing about my maternal grandmother’s passing.  I wanted to create an image that would resonate with her– she was fond of large mountains, being born and raised in the Rockies.  I tried to incorporate a bit of local flora (aspen and lodgepole pine) in the foreground with a dramatic landscape in the background.
