"Lady Face Mountain" II ©

Lady Face Mountain sits south of the 101 Freeway in Agoura. This painting was created from the small study done a few weeks ago. All it needs is a frame and off it will go to it's new home that faces this mountain.

One comment on mountain paintings. As I study the gulleys, fingers, cliffs and all the undulations that make up the structure of the range it's amazing to me how intimate my relationship with the mountain becomes. I would recognize this range now in any painting or photograph instantly. It's similar to the experience of painting a portrait. You learn every inch of the persons face so intensely that it you are connected to the sitter way beyond normal observation. A relationship is created like none other.
