There is sublimity
in the life of a glacier.
Water rivers work openly,
and so the rains
and the gentle dews ...
the universal ocean of breath,
yet speaks aloud in a
but glaciers work
apart from men,
exerting their tremendous energies
in silence and darkness,
unknown to light, unborn,
working on unwearied
through unmeasured times,
unhalting as the stars,
until at length,
their creations complete,
their mountains brought forth,
homes made for the meadows and the lakes,
and fields for waiting forests,
earnest, calm as when they came as crystals
from the sky, they depart.
One evening storm clouds rushed over Lake Tahoe, and unlike many other nights at sunset, when they would just as quickly vanish from the same direction from whence they came...this one night, they lingered on! I worked feriously to capture the emotional feelings I had for them...leaving a space for Mount Tallac...which I was blessed to capture the next morning, at sunrise...so guess you could call this piece a "time lapse plein air painting!"
Keeping with the
spirit of things
the following is also shared with you!
"TO THY OWN SELF BE TRUE"...
should be the basis of painting from
(which has always been my philosophy,
more important than any sales, or any approval!)
If you love strong beautiful paintings,
created from a person's very soul!
