Illustration Friday - "Wilderness"

I know this isn't a high concept contribution for "Illustration Friday: Wilderness", but "Outside Ouray" is a painting I've always liked. It's 42 by 60 inches, so it's large for me. The size may have prevented its sale in the past, I don't know, but I'm happy with it being in our living room.

I really like it too. It has an illustrative feel. More from your inner sight than a carbon copy of a scene. The colours that you used are more expressive. It also has a flowing quality. Beautiful.

I'd be happy having that in my livingroom too. I really like the movement of this, with the shadows playing over the forms. It's very stark and very powerful.
