“Rocky Mountain High,” painting

There is, you see, this loop:
I look. I feel. I reflect. I remember.
So when the time comes to face another empty canvas,
I dip into those remembered meanings.
And, through muscle and medium, ground and detail,
Shadow and substance…mountains and mist emerge.
Sea and sky. Morning light and evening shadow.
Form and color.

Do I paint what I see with my outer eye? Sometimes.
Do I paint what I see with my inner eye? Always.
So, an invitation: You look. You feel. You reflect. You remember.
Do you see what I see? Do you feel what I feel?
You do? May the loop continue….

Rocky Mountain High is a 20” x 20” acrylic painting on canvas.
