Tetons fra Unseen Angle
“Tetons, Again Reversed”, after Choate, 9×12 oil on canvas, by Rog Lyngaas, 3jul07, using choate7 non-toxic palette.
Can you see the true mountains through the mountains? Mountains may have souls. Inside many of the mountains in the Grand Teton area are deep hollow caverns. Like rock and mountain climbing, I used to spelunk. Some of the spelunkers I have known have explored/discovered some of these deep caverns. They say that near the bottom is a wretched stink. Not much is known of these caverns because the equipment used to explore them needs to be invented. Besides who wants to explore a stink pile. Anyway, Fred likes his students to not get bored. So sometimes I have to paint a painting upside down or as a mirror. This forces me to “Paint the Shapes, Not the Things!”. It is a challenge, but I need to do this more.
Speaking of shapes, did you notice that on occasion I slip a painting in that has hidden figures? That is right, one of my previous paintings in this blog roll has a naked pregnant woman. If you figure it out, please comment on that particular post. I will give you a hint, it is not the painting in this particular blog post.
