I love the title because it conveys exactly what I'm after when I'm out looking for something to paint.
Stepping into a bigger perspective just long enough to get a sense of contrast is what I seek out for my subject matter. Most of us have had a moment, usually in our youth, while looking up at the sky. For a brief glimpse, the enormity of the universe, the vastness of time, and the relative insignificance of our personal lives comes into view. In varying degrees, each of my paintings is an attempt to capture some semblance of that perspective.
This piece is about the unique point of view found Upcountry. The principal element found there is the most intangible: the silence.
