I enjoy painting rock formations and have been inspired recently by those of Death Valley because of their beautiful sinuous nature. But I've also been wanting to work more with color, especially what are called complementary contrasts, which can help create what artists call "vibration" between colors. I chose to paint these rock formations with blue, pink (actually made from orange), and green. My intention was to capture physically the "vibration" or glow that I believe underlies the material world as it pulses with spirit and life (regardless of whether it seems lifeless, like rocks). The hiddenness of that glow is why I chose to create a pool at the bottom of this crater-like formation; it would normally be hidden from view and here is revealed, like the color vibration. The pool also has gathered the moon's pink milk into itself and so not only reflects it but indicates the oneness of the material world, of which we are a part.
The giclee prints are on 100% cotton archival fine art paper, colors are matched to the original by the artist, and they are signed on the back. The original painting is 9 x 12"/23 x 30cm on canvas with a traditional 3/4"/2cm profile and requires a frame.
