Crescendo


This is one of the paintings from my first one-man show that opened at Elk Horn Gallery a few days ago. Elk Horn Gallery is located in Winter Park, Colorado. This painting I call Crescendo. It is the culmination of the body of work I did for this show. It was last painting I did and I felt like I had a reached a crescendo as the work was coming to the final painting. Deeper is the sign of hope. Through the ravage storms that we face there is a sunshine glimmering through, and the promise of the peace and joy that can lie within no matter how turbulant the storms may be.

Jake-At first glance on your blog it looks almost like a photograph. This painting really reminds me of Grand Junction up on the Mesa. The colors and "coolness" of the air.
The soft hints of yellow in the clouds is very effective as well. Nice work!
