The Grand Prismatic Pool - Yellowstone
Grand Prismatic - Yellowstone
6x8in oil on canvas panel $125.
If you are wondering what on earth this is besides color, you will not be alone.
This is abstract by nature and execution.
It is a composite from memory. One of the more difficult pieces I have done with
the fracturing technique...no scumbling the mist on here!
Of all the spots we went to in Yellowstone, this is the one which
made my heart beat
faster and my eyes and mind go into orbit.
Words seem inadequate to explain the surreal experience of walking in
and out of
mystical mists exposing gorgeous blues and turquoise
next to brilliant rust, orange and yellows
...only for them to disappear again.
If you have never been there, then check this video our friend and guide, Dave Hon, made.
Huge crowds gather to watch Old Faithful blow a plain white blast into the sky,
but it has nothing on the emotional level of this misty beauty of power and color.
In my humble opinion of course...
