Landscape

Shirl Ireland

Those who dwell among the beauties and mysteries of the earth

are never alone or weary of life.   Rachel Carson

I love contemplating nature and our place in it. Since I have been graced with a strong visual voice, (and I work hard to hone that) my landscape paintings are a deeper exploration of those questions. I often find metaphors in that exploration and delve into them further with paint, adding those layers of meaning into my landscape work.
 
So I listen to the wind, feel the colors of the sunrise, watch the way light rakes the forest and paint, paint, paint. The hopefulness of a morning dawn, the bittersweet sunset, the sheer power of a waterfall, or a cloudy misting mysterious day full of wonder, peppered with an occasional blue sky afternoon…. Such is the layered journey of life - and my landscape painting.
