Oh! I love this! The space/open air/emptiness in contrast to the solid/crowded/chaos of life. The mountain taking us to Heaven or at least higher ground and fresher air. I love the dark peaks poking through the layers of clouds and sky. I feel better just looking at this painting. This is absolutely wonderful art. Do you have more?

This is wonderful, Mark! When I first saw the thumbnail, "Chinese Silk" was the first thing my mind went to. This is a beautiful example of an ancient and very beautiful art-form. I remember reading somewhere about the process for making that ink, and thinking "It must take for-ev-er to create a painting. But as you said... Meditative.
And here I go thinking if I can't put an artwork together in an hour, I'm goofing off...
And indeed, even the framing, backing and methods of preserving these is an artform of its own. 15 years... Wow.
Good to see your work here as always, Mark!

Miraculously, impressive, more than refined,haeven, clouds, skies, a space that speaks of a history (kidding: of 15 years?). Seriously, if I've to describe my impressions, what it shows me, then I've to think of a, such very old history. Then I hear, as it were: "go, and multiplies you".
The mountains in the foreground are from a creative God, who broadcasts his sons and daughters. That's what I see here happen. God, as rock, steadfast, his offspring in motion, looking for their way. I see them moving and strive for their purpose, participating a mission. Every smaller mountain has a personal assignment, for the time being for people a secret.
This special 'cloth', your creation tells the background story of a grand secret.
Thank you a lot for posting this, Mark. I stay impressed behind.
Such a shame I didn't receive ebots for your uploads, but.... I received your site mail, thank you for this. ;-)
