I painted this watercolor nearly twenty years ago, when I first arrived in Fredericksburg. It’s not very large, and took just an hour or so to paint, but is still one of my favorites. It expresses the feeling of open space that you don’t experience in the Northwest.
I painted this about nineteen years ago but is still one of my favorite watercolors. During a one man show about ten years ago, one young man stared at this painting for three hours, uninterrupted, then begged me to tell him what it means. It’s called Fantasy Art for a reason.
The detail is beyond my camera, so I had a local company, J2 blueprints do a high resolution scan so I can make prints. Please check it out. Zoom in to see the detail. Prints will soon be available at http://www.Saatchi.com.
I painted this in November for a December show at the Aurora Gallery. Not a juried show but this was the only piece that sold.
