Its Own Landscape – painting Dan Beck 2010
Seemed like a good time to add a recent image. Like the last painting and article below – this painting is not so much based on anything in particular but more about color and clouds.
The title speaks for itself – the painting is its own place – not a completely implausible place but not particularly based on anything recently seen or any recent scene, as it were. Interesting how similar a meaning of those two words seen and scene … such as “seen in passing” or “passing scene”.
I guess my hope for such a painting – and as is the case for me – it is familiar enough looking yet different enough to be fun to look at. My visual experience is never going to be exactly like anyone else’s experience – even if it is a shared experience. We come to the world differently – and it is beautiful that there is such variation.
The colors, composition, and clouds speak to me – perhaps they will to you as well.
