I stepped back a bit from my stronger landscapes and followed a very gentle breeze as I painted this piece. I wanted soft and creamy, like Italian gelato and gentle, like a cashmere blanket. I hoped to entice the viewer to step in and wander to the horizon to bathe in the sunlight.
These thoughts…these goals…at times seem to possess my brush as I paint. It doesn’t happen all the time, but when it does, the painting develops on its own…easy, effortless.
This painting gives me great joy in its simplicity and, dare I say “yummy-ness”. I hope it finds a home in a household of peace or, on the other hand, a household in search of peace. I believe it could impart a calming effect on any environment.
BREEZES is available at Earthen Vessel Gallery in Durango, Colorado.
Enduring calm and happiness…from the studio
