Mount Washington with its pristine forests and spectacular natural beauty was the subject of this July 2003 photograph made just before sunset on our way to Sisters, Oregon.
Just weeks later on August 16th, the region would be engulfed in forest fires that would burn through October. Much of the primeval old growth woods seen in this image were razed by the fire leaving a charred landscape.
In this interpretive impressionistic work I wanted to impart a feeling from the memories and rapture this site could evoke. In the presence of such beauty, Mt. Washington could cast a spell on all those that gazed upon it. The sensation was undeniable. Standing under the grandeur of Mt. Washington at it soared over woodsy greens, itself struck by bold intensities of color soon to fade... it was hard to imagine that this sanctuary could have been vulnerable to the flames that consumed it.
The print is bold in its use of color reminiscent of the impressionist Georges Seurat of the late 19th Century. Points of color and light capture the essence of this primeval scene in my own version of his "chromoluminarism."

Elizabeth Graf's fine art store on Etsy is well worth a visit--
"ABOUT ME: I have a HUGE body of work which not only includes paintings, but drawings and photographs. I plan in the future to present prints for sale besides my paintings. I have shown in galleries and art shows but I think I have found my perfect "niche" in Etsy -- selling online allows me the maximum amount of time to tend to my artwork and artist's psyche!"
"MY PAINTINGS TELL STORIES" - My GREATEST inspiration in my childhood were the illustrations by John R. Neill for The Wizard of Oz series of books. The black and white drawings danced, flowed, moved out of the page -- so powerful! Other inspirations include "everything tropical", marine life, Chinese/Asian, flowers/plants (scenes from my property) and the look of French Provence linens and their colors -- well, let's just say: EVERYTHING!"
