I just finished this painting and I have it hanging on my studio wall that faces the door. WhenI enter the room and my eye lands on it, I feel an openness. Like I can breathe.
That’s what I am wanting to capture in these landscapes I have been painting lately. The layers of wild grass, swaying in the breeze and the openness of the sky and the water, in this case. A place where one can breathe in what nature gives us so freely.
“There is an eternal landscape, a geography of the soul; we search for its outlines all our lives.” – Josephine Hart
