Far From Blue
A blue and gold aspen forest diptych is my adventure in blissful painting – feeling the trees stretching high above, with their velvety trunks of off-white, with hints of green and secretive scars. I’m endlessly curious about the markings on aspen tree trunks, especially the century-old art of Spanish sheepherders that roamed our mountains. In the diptych, I convey these trunks with scraps of papers I’ve bought, collected or been gifted by traveling friends. If you look closely, you’ll find all kinds of beauty and humor. Even my son’s homework adorns a trunk or two. .
