Enlivening the Virgin Valley…


“Pacification of Virginia (aft Ray Roberts)”, 12×16 oil on canvas, by Rog Lyngaas, x8 palette, 18apr09.

The title of this post is intended to clue you into the fact that this painting is not of a place in the Commonwealth of Virginia.  It is intended to give peace in your mind by viewing a virgin valley that is being enlivened by the moist cool waters of fresh snow melt.  But the scene reminds me of someplace in Virginia.  A place I have only seen whilst asleep on a bus.

X8 Palette…
