Ghost Lake I + II / 36x72 / acrylic on gallery canvas
Whenever I work on a diptych, I try to create two complete paintings that can be hung as a set but can also be separated in order to display them as full pieces on their own. I love the fact that a diptych can create a huge painting to fill a wall, but whenever we'd like a change they can be moved to different areas of the house. I like flexibility because I love redecorating on occasion just to freshen things up. And I also love larger works to make a bold statement on a wall. Plus, diptychs are much easier to transport, which is always great for me.
This particular piece was inspired by a drive through the foothills with my husband. Because I always carry a small moleskine sketchbook in my purse, I was able to capture the beauty of the fall harvest nestled in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains. I love this time of year, the beautiful colours and this place that we live in so much.
