Painting again! I usually go through dormant stages, but eventually end up picking up the brushes and getting out the paints!
This painting is from a recurring "mountain image" in my mind from all of the years that I lived in Vermont. I grew up on Long Island, but loved to ski - not very well, mind you! I decided to be a ski bum one season in Vermont, but didn't realize -- back then -- that I would stay there for the next 17 years!
"Ah - Yup," as they say.
Vermont is where I learned most of my fiber arts like knitting, felting, and spinning yarn. It was there that I learned how to paint watercolors as well.
There is a Christian worship song, with the chorus: "Lead me to the Rock that is higher than I." This chorus became engrained in my mind, from listening to it over and over when I went running. For this painting, I decided to add this chorus for encouragement and inspiration. There are many people who need encouragement right now.
The painting measures 10" x 7" on Windsor & Newton "Cotman," 140 1b watercolor paper.
