Boulder Creek‚ Autumn 08 #1

James Cook

This painting "Boulder Creek-Autumn" was painted from drawings done over an extended time in Colorado. The medium is oil paint on Belgian linen canvas. The landscape is painted in an "impasto" style which takes advantage of the thick, paste like, qualities of oil paint to introduce a sculptural dimension to objects being described." Boulder Creek-Autumn" reflects the energy that we feel in nature, the power of crashing water, the texture on the trunks of aspen, and the feel of the surface of great boulders. The large two panel format creates a painting nearly twenty feet long which gives the viewer a sense of being surrounded by the forest landscape.
