Running Down - Landscape View From Hatcher Pass
Painting - Oil On Linen Board
It's all downhill from here. Or so I thought as I spotted this landscape close to Hatcher Pass. I could hear nothing except the cold, rushing water, running down and splashing into the nearby tundra. I bundled up against the biting fog, and dove in--to the painting, that is. I relished the oblivion that comes from total concentration on painting what is in front of me.
I accepted the challenge of using what is known as the Zorn palette for this painting--a very limited color palette of red, yellow ocher, blue-black, and white. I was rather surprised at how much I could do with so little.
In life, we are not all gifted with equal talents and abilities. We aren't all given the same privilege, opportunity, or capability. Some have more. Others have less. What we *do* have in common however, is the ability to grow, to stretch, to become more than what we were, to improve and build upon our foundation. We can mix the colors we've been given into a zillion different combinations.
When you feel that it can only go downhill from where you are, I hope you remember this painting, painted with only two colors, plus black and white. And enjoy the ride down. ~Tali
