Domes, an older painting from 2011-12 was temporarily installed over a fireplace last summer. Domes was an experiment in using two places (St. Peter’s Basillica and the Pantheon both in Rome but built 1500 years apart) in the same painting. A dynamic landscape.
I like the angle of the bridge in the composition and the play of the bright snow to the trees. The light was very bland on this day and it forced me to look at shape, color and composition to come up with a scene. It was peaceful.
I was following directions on google maps through my phone. My destination was a lake. I was unfamiliar with the area, so it wasn’t until I had reached my destination that I realized I was several miles off course at an old farmhouse in the middle of nowhere. However, as an artist, the middle of nowhere is sometimes a good place to be, so I got out my paint box.
