Landscape 2



I'm absolutely fascinated by how much or how little is needed to interpret an abstract image as a landscape (or, sometimes, a seascape). I think our human brains just need a horizon line and maybe nothing more, or very little more (like the tiniest hint of "trees" here). Playing with this idea intrigues me to no end.

love the combination of minimalism and expressionism

Amazing how many colors there are in this "blue" pastel. And to think I don't paint in Hawaii because I don't want everything to be blue. You remind me to look until I see.

Ah so, grasshoppah. Many blues there are in the world for you to see.

Thanks, Susan! Some of my favorite things, too.
