Seeking Safe Passage

Deep blue storm clouds drift over the valley and distant mountains, deep shadows in the foreground create more drama in this horizontal oil painting by artist Cynthia McLoughlin.

Safe Travel?

Seeking safe passage is something that we are all concerned about these days. I for one was getting really antsy. I decided to take a road trip to Jackson, Wyoming to look for a second gallery to represent my work and pop in to Yellowstone National Park.

Yellowstone is a short drive from Jackson and I had never been there. I love visiting our National Parks and Forests. They always provide amazing inspiration and renew my spirit. Expecting to see regional visitors, I was shocked to see license plates ranged from Alaska to New Jersey and every state in between. I am happy to report that almost everyone wore masks in town and we seem to have dodged the covid bullet, thankfully.

Seeking Safe Passage

This painting, (above), stretches out in front of the viewer. I have always loved watching cloud shadows, drifting over the mountains. It is super relaxing for me, similar to watching the actual clouds drift across the sky. Adding a dark cloud shadow in the foreground of this piece adds a bit of drama. It creates a threshold for the viewer to move beyond, pushing toward the distant mountains on the horizon and creates space in the piece.

Painting on Metal

Painting on metal is a challenge to photograph since you don’t see the reflection of light in my work in a still pic. Come and see my paintings in person at The Summit Gallery! 675 Main Street, Park City, Utah. It is just down the hill from LL Bean;)
