Another acrylic on gessoed paper. From 2007. With a nod to Tracy Helgeson and an article in the Syracuse Post Standard showing me how she simplifies the landscape into its basic parts. Color is key. And...for me....texture. This one was before the heavy surface texture but it led to the place I'm painting today. For someone used to working and overworking a painting ......(to death)....... this was the start.
