photo reference


This is a photo I took on a winter trek in Eastern Washington. It will serve as inspiration for the next landscape painting. It's relatively flat compared to images I usually choose but I love the subtle color and pattern. In order to give it more depth I'll open up a space that invites the viewer further in to see the layers in the background.

Michelle, this reminds me of the mural that you painted in the student commons at UA-F. I remember you painting a carving with yours and Ken's initials on one of the birch trees.

It is great seeing your work.
