|The Meadow | Pastel | 9x8|
My favorite hikes in the Sierra's are ones where we are rewarded with a meadow after miles of walking through the dappled forest. Watching the shadows elongate across a meadow as the day wanes is a joy to take in. It is akin to a meditation, calming the spirit and making one be right there, right then!
Process: a black sheet of Ar Spectrum is a luscious surface to paint the richly contrasting values of the late afternoon. Painting this made me feel as serene as I did the day we sat and looked upon this meadow after hiking miles up in the Sierra's.
