This is lovely. Great sense of place, and distance. Reduced palette--subtle.

yes Filip, a real place.
Shaungunk Mt range in New Paltz, NY
The closest ridge is called The Trapps and is popular for rock climbing.
Thanks

The green hills rolling, moving like waves in the water...they are fluid & in motion.
The clouds are fantastic. They seem to be raining life into the ground.

I like this...maybe it's the simplicity, duo tone nature of many of your pieces that attracts me.
Like the Mark Rothko of W/C....but a lot more interesting than Mr Rothko!

Hope that doesn't offend unduly...not intended to be a serious critique, just first thoughts...
and they're always dangerous!

Oh, those crazy folk who must always climb the north face of the Eiger in winter.
And sleep in hammocks overnight halfway to the summit. :D
