Red is the Color

Red is the Color

The mountain ash seed pods and the heads of the turkey vultures flaunt their red colors on Whitetop Mountain in Grayson County, Virginia. The remnants of an alpine forest left over from the last ice age grace the very top. You can see the blue mountains stack one behind the other in different directions. It makes you wonder what the first colonists thought when they first saw them and it makes you realize that Native Americans had to have countless lore and beliefs about the mountains that are lost forever.

A Beautiful Alpine Scene

A Beautiful Alpine Scene

I love the palette knife paintings of Hans Ressdorf, both his ones of Germany and of the American West. I have been greatly influenced by his work. He passed away in 2011. This painting is my rendition of one of his that I saw somewhere and which I thought was tremendous. I know I could never do the kind of work he did, but I just had to attempt one with the same arrangement of objects as he used and hope this is a decent tribute to him.

The Seventh of October on Whitetop

The Seventh of October on Whitetop

This was the way it looked on Whitetop Mountain in Grayson County, Virginia, on the 7th of October, 2017. Since I was looking for fall colors before the first killing frost, the orange in weeds fit the bill. Of course I took some artistic license, but I did try to keep the colors as true as I could. Whitetop is the second highest peak in Virginia. It has the remnants of the last Ice Age flora and is believed to be a mountain bald from early times. This is a view into the mountains of North Carolina.
