Out of the Blue – Cherie Giddens
Out of the Blue
Framed 24 x30
Taos Gorge Overlook
Framed 28 x 22
The “Gorge”, formed thru violent eruptions and force, is a transformed landscape of awesome beauty. The sepia tones represent past times melting into the NOW. Not unlike the beauty of a transformed life in the hands of God.
Pretty N Pink
Framed 30 x 40
Transparent Watercolor & Acrylic
The extravagance of the Peony inspired this large portrayal of their soft petals. I began with watercolor to capture the blooms. The painting was then mounted on a board with additional paper added for texture. Acrylic paint was then used for strong contrast to surround the blooms of “Pretty N Pink”.
Evening at the Falls
28 x 21 Framed
I began with wet-into-wet color to tone the paper with the color of the prevailing light against the cliffs. These colors of crimson were allowed to shine through every detail of the painting.
