Outsider Art and Mountain Trees

Some ask, “Why don’t you paint realistically?” If I painted a mountain with her hills, waterfalls and trees realistically most everyone would say, “Wow look at the artist’s skill.”

The picture below drew on fifty seven years of training but doesn’t show it off. In stead we concentrate on the patterns in nature. We see the bigness of the mountains hugged by clouds, four birds, and one bird shadow. Do you ever notice the fleeting flight of airplane and bird shadows? Water is practically singing as it falls, puddles in a pond, and splashes on low down rocks on the left of the picture.   nancymauerman.com
