"Mountain Ridge"

Oil on 1/8" Gessoboard. Approx 6"x6" SOLD

I wanted to focus on the background more on this painting. Really trying to capture the atmosphere in those mountains.

Michael, This piece is so unique for your blog yet it feels very good. You created a loose softness in the foreground, and I love the litle bit of red that pulls the eye from the foreground toward the midground and directs me toward the line of the center mountain peak and beyond. I feel like I've traveled through this space. Your color pallete for this piece is very full too!

Hey, Michael...
I love these "different" pieces... I'm sure you could paint ANYTHING beautifully, and I've become used to the gorgeous still lifes and portraits...
Now we'll all expect IT ALL!! (LOL)
