Along the levy of the north fork of the Skagit River, Mount Baker peeks over the top, an awesome but subtle depiction on this clear day. In reality, the foreground is covered with blueberries but, being literal is not what I am about. Representaton comes second to texture and color. Truth is more feeling than fact.
The finished painting here is 36"x60" so when compressed in a photo, you cannot see the texture(impasto). This is the reason I have also posted the closeup shown below.
