Awaken, Mayview Blowing Rock

Open Edition

Prev Next
The view of John’s River Gorge from the Mayview / Wonderland Trail area of Blowing Rock is for me, one of the most spectacular landscape vistas around. This view of Grandfather Mountain is bold and powerful, and Table Rock and Hawksbill are visible in the distance. I enjoy going there in the early evening and sitting on the stone wall beside the road as the sun fades. The sounds coming from the gorge intrigue me almost as much as the view. One of my favorite watercolor painters, Charles Burchfield (1893-1967, Ohio School Painter) managed to place the sounds of nature in to his paintings, relying on interpretive shapes and pattern qualities to represent what he heard. For me, making art that is personal and a translation rather than a transcription is the ultimate goal. It is my job to share my experience and feelings using pigments on the paper, along with good design principles. Therefore, the results are often surprising to me as I follow the lead of the subject and the workings of the medium. The Giclee is certified with authentic artist signature. The Accent is a smaller print with watermark and digital signature. This is an Open Edition print.
