Alpine Meadows at Sunset. Acrylic on Canvas Panel. 18" x 24" 1997.
I began this painting while chairing a High School art department in Colorado, and put it aside when I left teaching. My father let me come to his ranch while I figured out what I would do with myself, and I finished it as the snows of September began. It depicts the same evening on the high meadows as the larger panel. Resolving this smaller painting gave me the inspiration for the larger painting, where I investigated a different approach to color relationships laying them side by side rather than layering and blending.
