Surreal Rocky Mountain Picnic
This image pays homage to the majesty of Colorado. It is realism with a twist. I put still life objects on a mirror, then put the mirror at tree line, 11,000 feet above sea level where the pines twist and the forest surrenders itself to tundra and twisted pine. Playful and puzzling, it is Rocky Mountain National Park, influenced by modernism. The silver bowls reflect a breathtaking view of the Continental Divide on the one side and abstract a Ponderosa pine cone on the other.
This painting is responsible for my acceptance into the highly regarded International Guild of Realism. It was an honor to be included into a group of masters as well as Southwest Art Magazine in their May 2012 Edition focusing on the still life.
