An empty, tilled field in the early afternoon on a hot,humid summer day-
Rolling pastures, mountains and a ramshackle fence on a hot, hazy midsummer day-
Abandoned field with cedars around midafternoon on a hot, hazy day with slightly overcast skies-
An abandoned field overlooking distant mountains at midday in warm, dry weather- maybe early summer.
Mountain and rolling fields on a partly cloudy day perhaps in early summer-
My memory of the view from my bedroom’s north facing window at sunrise two days ago-
A fiery sunset evolved from two rectangular blotches of paint on a piece of scrap canvas-
another mini landscape-
These mini landscapes make me think of the backgrounds of some of Pieter Bruegel The Elder’s non creepy scenes-specifically the hazy atmosphere, patches of light beige fields disappearing in the distance and the grayish blue sky.
My first batch of porcelain “sea forms” survived their first trip through the kiln. These are all completely free form pieces- I wasn’t quite sure what the final object would be and they all have a very organic ( and oceanic) look to them. Next step – glazing.
