Today Sanford Gifford and Thomas Moran joined me in the studio. Can you tell? I am really trying to push the foreground mass forward and have a kind of magic light in the background.
This painting is beginning to go through that awkward adolescence as it and I figure which way to go. I am now debating with placing a rock and shrubs in the very front (note the lines.) I have also decided to place a piece of mankind in the painting.. a road winding through the mountain. The studio can be a lot of fun (and work and torment) for these reasons. Invention...it's just me and the painting and what ever inspiration I cook up.
