This new work is a large triptych in process for the upcoming exhibition, Altered Landscapes at Space Gallery in Denver. Each of the three panels is 48x48". It is the largest offering so far in this new series of paintings:
Aspen / Chromatic Shifts
A collection of paintings inspired by color, shape and texture of the high altitude mountainous landscape during the peak of the Fall season when the Aspen and Cottonwood trees create a color spectacle across the land. Ridge lines and forests shift chromatic hues vividly during a 2 week spell in late Autumn. Turning from Summer Greens to bright yellows to oranges to reds to rusts to browns. The wide angle landscape creates islands of floating color. I chose to focus my painting on the shifting patches of vibrant color as it relates to the mountainous landscape at large.
This huge triptych is finished. I can't wait to show it at Space Gallery next month. See the finished piece revealed on the opening night - May 18th - Altered Landscapes.
