After this amazing weekend we spend in the beautiful Bath Country, Virginia, I felt this great understanding of and appreciation for landscape painters. Not that I'd never been inspired by beautiful scenic views before, however, for some reason I just never had the urge to paint them.
Exploring this past weekend, however, I suddenly got it. I snapped photo after photo after photo of the gorgeous fields, hills, and streams throughout the Shenandoah Valley to bring home and paint. (whether I get to that project or not, time will tell...)
So, today's post will be the first of a few landscape artists that I admire. A little series within a series...
Philip Govedare's abstracted landscapes of excavated sites are just bursting with energy. His use of color and line are what drew me in...beautiful works, eh?
Happy Monday everyone!
