"This Way to Heaven"


"This Way to Heaven" - Oil - 11" x 14" - $260

"The evergreens seemed to conspire with the granite summit to point skyward. Born in the Trinity Alps National Recreational area of northern California, the repeating shapes and light-dark contrast made this one special. The mountain really was all granite to the valley floor and uncommonly beautiful." --- SFG

NOTE TO ARTISTS:
The painter must be careful when appoaching a subject like this. Repetition is a useful element in a painting, but you must vary the shapes to avoid boring the viewer. I used warms in the foreground to create the depth needed to push back, first, the dark trees and, secondly, the distant mountain.
