It’s all atmospheric

Lately, everything I’ve been painting is atmospheric. No (or very few) hard edges;  lots of soft, fuzzy stuff. And interestingly, my recent vacations have been very soft focused: the Canadian Rockies with the British Columbia forest fires providing lots of smoke; Montana’s Glacier National Park with California providing lots of smoke; and then Chile and Argentina (mostly Patagonia) with lots of fuzzy mountains in the background.  I actually love that kind of landscape.

Well, here are some of the results.

The skies in Patagonia were absolutely spectacular.

You can see why Bariloche is called the Little Switzerland of Argentina.

Bariloche is a beautiful part of Argentina.

The Lake Louise ski area in Alberta, although relatively deserted in the summer, is really beautiful, especially when viewed from the top of a chair lift.

Alberta, where I was born, is a beautiful province and, compared to NYC where I now live, relatively uninhabited.  I loved the peaceful solitude.

    The soft, atmospheric quality of your art is beautiful.

      Thanks, Christine. Acrylic on raw canvas, like wet on wet watercolor, is pretty unforgiving. But when it works, it’s wonderful. (You’re not seeing my failures.)
