Mountain Face #3 (sold)

- by Virginia Ann Zuelsdorf

This week's theme: Cliffs, Canyons and Bluffs

We view erosion as something negative. We fight erosion. We build structures to prevent erosion. Erosion costs us money, our homes and businesses. As natural processes go, it's a powerful and insistent one. While we are not fans of erosion in the present, we are in awe of what erosion has created in the past. Some of the most striking landscapes exist because of erosion. Some of these features took millions of years to create, some far fewer. It's the constant movement of wind and water created the landscape features we love and that makes all of them - regardless of age, a work in progress.


Art: Mountain Face #3 (sold) by Artist Virginia Ann Zuelsdorf
This is yet another in my ongoing series of western paintings. The inspiration for this piece is my photographs taken on one of my many trips to Colorado. This is the Black Canyon of the Gunnison River. I absolutely love this painting!There's a lot of texture and loose brush strokes in this piece. As with a lot of my paintings, you can find all kind of things in it.
