Silver And Gold - Matanuska Canyon Cliffs River Fireweed
Painting - Plein Air Impressionist Oil On Linen Board
The gray Matanuska River flows through some of the most spectacular landscape I have ever witnessed. Starting at the terminus of Matanuska Glacier, the river cuts between the Chugach Range Mountains and the rugged Talkeetna Mountains. Colorful canyon walls grace the river's narrows. During bursts of sunlight that part the overcast skies, the river sparkles a blinding silver. Warm light contrasts on the canyon cliffs radiating a sandy yellow ochre. Topping off the show, wet fireweed blooms in the foreground, its transparent magenta petals gleaming. How does an artist even begin to capture such majesty?
This miniature plein air oil painting was painted on a blissful day, among friends and associates. it was was a demonstration for painting straight from my immediate senses and impressions. Its abstract nature was born spontaneously and directly from my heart. I adore contrasts!!
Bring this little gem home, an original impressionist oil painting, or order a large print to infuse you surroundings with silver and gold only found in magic moments at magic places with magic people.
