Tourist Landscapeimage

In one gallery, an artist painted abstract landscapes in an effort to balance the number of artists who painted “tourist landscapes”.  I smiled, but I still prefer the more realistic in this case.  The landscapes are so different than what I know.

I love the number of colors of green on these mountains and how the ridges are emphasized by a run of dark evergreens.  I like the clouds following the peaks and wish the sky had come out a deeper blue.  It is hard to see in this size, but I love the horizontal green bands of the fields in the foreground that counter the vertical heights of the mountains.
