"MT. EVANS LAYERS" ORIGINAL MIXED MEDIA PAINTING OF SCENES OF MT. EVANS © SAUNDRA LANE GALLOWAY

"Mt Evans Layers"
48" x 18" mixed media on cradled MDF panel
for more information click the title for my website

This turned out to be a great companion to my "Gore Range Layers" as I used similar color palette, or it would stand fine on it's own.  A LOT in this one...alpine sunflowers, pines along the ridge, rock fields, and of course my all favorite aspen.  I enjoyed working my way down this one!

This is the part of the mountain that I can see from the top of my property, so it has become my favorite section to address...I love the way the pines flank the top of the ridge...I added aspen there as a liberty...they exist...but not exactly in that spot below the mountain...

The rock fields are on the hike up...and the alpine sunflowers are in a field a bit away...but still in and around!!  The two aspen atop the rock in a different area really DO exist coming out of the rock...so, in they went!

it is always a challenge to decide how to incorporate the aspen at the bottom like I've enjoyed doing...but it seemed to work out fine here, so in they went!!

I enjoyed working this large piece that I will most probably put in my new gallery; Creations; in Louisville at the first of June...but, NOW I am in the mood to play with something different...MAYBE even an abstract...I played around with composition and I'm thinking something more abstract!  Wish me luck!!

HAPPY CREATING!

Une composition pleine de fraîcheur...
J'aime particulièrement cette belle montagne où la chèvre de Monsieur Seguin dans Alphonse Daudet aurait bien aimé se trouver pour y brouter une herbe remplie de fleurs...
Gros bisous, je vous souhaite beaucoup de bonheur et de santé en ce jour de 1 mai.

Your greens/blues in the beautiful fields are always my favorite, Saundra. They are just so stunning. Of course, every time you do a Mt. Evans piece, I am enamored. Always looking forward to what you do next.
