Far Hill



Acrylic on Panel

I found myself in a landscape setting I was bored with, so instead of painting my immediate surroundings, I picked one distant hill as my subject. It was early in the morning (a time of day I rarely see) so the hills were the same fiery orange they are at sunset, though unlike sunset, they get lighter and brighter as you sit there and you find you're questioning your initial swathes of orange.

i'm with sheila: this one is tremendous. though i'm partial to your surreal sunday (blue flag) piece below, as well. how big are your pieces, typically?
