I am currently painting a small study on the "Final Approach" theme, which I began last week with a larger 20x16 work (see photos below).
I was inspired by the view out the plane window on a flight to Denver International Airport last February. On final approach to the airport the snowy wheat fields were lit from within with shades of gold and violet. The sky above was a shimmering turquoise, and the air was a clear, frosty gold. There and then, I vowed to capture this on canvas, but it's taken almost a year to get there. Had to get in winter mode again, I suppose.
Hello! Thanks for visiting my blog! I aim to write as often as possible on my creative process, with current "on My Easel Today" updates on current works.
