Big Valley 1 – Digital Painting / Art Prints – Dan Beck 2005

I featured this piece once before but didn’t really write about it. I don’t really remember creating this digital painting, but looking at it today – I can flash to where I must have been viewing – looking west out over the Salinas Valley with the Gabilan mountains behind.

There is an ambiguity in this piece in regards to how the hills are sitting – how the fields intersect – it captures without being particularly literal.

I love this aspect of art – not just in my own – when something looks very different from convention, yet is unmistakable nevertheless.

The essence of a thing is not always what we assume it to be.
