St. Sophia is the first of three pieces painted while traveling in my Astro-Van across the Western US. St. Sophia is the name of the peak in Telluride CO, where I took my canvas to paint this piece. The three paintings were a part of a show in San Fransisco about abstracting nature. Terrain is a series that abstracts flora and landscapes through the use of bare hand techniques to mimick the flowing gestures found in nature.
