Red Hills

Red Hill 12x12 inches, sold
In a lot of my work the horizon line is a compositional element that continues to gain importance through out this  series.  It gives me grounding. A place to grab on to. Red Hills is a painting I was searching ( a lot of marks/ sgraffito) for that line and the exact place to grab the horizon.

sgraffito, n. (Italian: “scratched”), in the visual arts, a technique used in painting, pottery, and glass, which consists of putting down a preliminary surface, covering it with another, and then scratching the superficial layer in such a way that the pattern or shape that emerges is of the lower colour.
