Valley of the Shadow

 Study (acrylic 5x5)

"Valley of the Shadow" is an allegorical picture of the struggles and trials we each face in life. The rider here, gently coaxing his horse uphill in a rocky terrain beneath a stormy background. The design of this painting (and many of late) is heavily influenced by several of the Taos painters from roughly a hundred years ago... What I appreciate about their work is the liberty they took exaggerating design and emphasizing colour while remaining in the representational arena.

Valley of the Shadow oil (30x30)

Here I have designed the storm clouds with a southwestern cultural feel to it's shape and rendering. Ideas for this composition came from my sketchbook and recent trips to the Arizona and California deserts.  This painting (along with 3 others) will be featured in the Autry Museum's "Masters of the American West" show and sale opening in Los Angeles, February 8th, 2020~
