David Shingler. Wow, amazing artist who depicts scenes from all across the country. After recently being in the mountains – we got sucked in (big time) and just want to go back. David’s paintings give you the feel like you’re there. I love the distance that you can feel in this painting – because when you’re high on top of a mountain looking out at the stunning vista – at times it’s like being in the clouds, literally and other times you can literally feel that great expanse between mountain ranges.
My very favorite part of this painting – is the abstract style of it and that oh-so-fabulous tree on the top of the mountain. It feels hopeful and strong and fabulous! There is just nothing like being at a higher elevation. In Charleston we about 8′ above sea level. Can you imagine? So getting to an elevation of 5,000 feet takes a few days of heart pounding walking to get used to, ha ha.
David’s got a great website, be sure to check it out!
