Fire & Ice

The reference photo which inspired this painting was sent to me by my friend. It was originally a picture of an iceberg, so was very much blue/green, with water in the foreground. Encouraged by Tonya, I changed the pallette to mostly reds. Once red, the lines and values of the iceberg took on the look of a mountain to me. Painting rocks and fabric have the same effect on me as painting macro flowers; they pull me in and I become part of the object while painting it. This was a great escape. Thanks Tonya!
