Down into the Water


2005.
I`m trying in my new work, to focus on smaller parts of the landscape, almost like still life. This, from a few years ago, is almost there. The varying degree of abstraction I use is always determined by the subject. What do I emphasize, distort or distill to get to the essence of this landscape? With a closer view, I`m finding more precision is called for yet I don`t want to illustrate it. This is a challenge.

I totally understand getting closer in landscape and creating work that is more still life like. It is how I see the landscape! I like this piece which is daring given the strong horizontal line across it.

OOO! The perspective creates such tension. Interesting point of view. Makes me wonder where the viewer is standing . . . or floating.
