|Cadillac Mountain colors and shapes|
Here's a close up showing the wonderful abstract shapes that emerge and that I get to play with and paint into. These rock surfaces are not just a stipling of color. They are twisting and cropped shapes that have tremendous energy at the miniature level and mass up to create a richness that goes beyond impressionist dots. Look at the colors that emerge as well. I have several hundred of these paintings and after having done them as an experiment over the past few years I find they have informed the "from scratch" paintings I'm doing in a big way.
