Congratulations to Peter Campbell who was a finalist in the International Artist Magazine Landscape art competition. His work, Rising is featured in the December/January issue of International Artist.
This is what Peter had to say about his work:
“While I do a fair amount of traveling to seek new places to paint, I often find the best paintings are found quite close to home. Rising was inspired by a field only a couple of miles from my house. During the monsoon season in Southwest Colorado the clouds will build in the afternoon, and while passing this field one late afternoon, a painting presented itself to me. The clouds rising with the folden hayfield were so dramatic I knew I had to try and capture it, so I did a small painting. I find water to be a fascinating subject in all its forms, as rivers, oceans, snow or, in this case, clouds. Water and how light reacts with it make for endless inspirations.”
