Mountain Sails Again – digital painting / original prints – Dan Beck 2004
Pulled this piece up today – again following the concept of even how all original art comes from somewhere else. Way prior to this piece, I did a very fluid mostly abstract painting which conjured up this lake, sea, mountain, and sail look – entitled Mountain Sails.
That original digital painting seemed quite unique to me and was the first painting I ever printed on a larger scale. Like life, we move on to new challenges and develop new ways of doing things – sometimes we long for the innocence of yesterday.
There is nothing original about trying to capture the feeling of a previous work – and yet it is original – the approach is different because it has the advantage of having seen what has come before.
Experience is built upon – the above piece though a bit stylized still works but doesn’t have that quality of having found a new place.
- Mountain Sails – original digital painting – perhaps more original since it came first
- Innocence Art Quotations – The Painter’s Keys Resource of Art Quotations – quotes are always fun and do provide some additional background and understanding
