Viewscape | 18" x 36" | 2015 | $300 | Acrylic on canvas. This piece holds a lot of significance for me in terms of my artistic journey so I think it is appropriate for my first post. It was the first piece I created for a group show, which was at International Gallery of Contemporary Art in Anchorage, AK. The painting was inspired by a view I came across while on a hike. I'd been walking through trees for about an hour and then suddenly came into an opening on a hill and the vast and humbling Alaska landscape spilled out all around me. The warm color palette is a nod to the late evening summer sun that allows us to hike 24 hours a day.
