The title for this piece, Sunshine and Shadow, comes from the subject matter. I've always been interested by the ways light and shadow create the form of the landscape, especially when the focal point is defined by areas of light that highlight the contours of the land.
I created this piece without a reference and chose to explore the landscape through intuition. It's inspired by places I have seen, but it perhaps more grandiose than any of them. It's a hidden valley in my mind where I would go to think. The piece is also about contrasts. There is a storm brewing in the background, but it's held at bay by the mountains and the hidden valley remains pristine and untouched. Darkness and light lead your eye through the scene.
