Gabilan Foothillsoriginal digital painting – Dan Beck 2007

As I start writing today, I realize I was waiting to do a new digital painting before writing again in my blog. My current weblog is focused on original art and I wanted to feature something which was original in the sense of having not been seen.

Obviously, it is not completely different from my other work or art which has come before me – I don’t believe such a thing exists or should exist – continuity is also essential in order to see the newness and distinction.

Someone speaking in a completely foreign tongue would not be particularly interesting barring the shared body language we might have.

So I had particular fun with the weedy ground cover in the front and the greenish sky – and have never painted rudimentary cows before – no reason why – except it isn’t really my thing – but I saw them the other day – and a new challenge is often worth pursuing.

  • Houses on the Hillside – not sure why – but I am reminded of this piece – also a drive by glance and a different sort of challenge
  • Green Sky Landscape – I do like this landscape, but more importantly search brought me to a website worth a good perusal – some really nice work here by different artists raising awareness and money at – The Body: Visual Aids Web Gallery
