Oh wow! This feels like a visual representation of a sound or peal carrying over the land. There's a tonal quality to such sounds, and if I were doing a movie about nature the superimposed sound would be the cry of an indigenous, majestic bird, or a shamanic flute. I love the colors and your use of the saturation, as well as the horizontal striations as a featured component of this painting.

One of my flights of fancy for this one is that there is a mirroring of solidity between the earth and sky, as if one was picking up subtleties and characteristics that many would not normally associate with the elements. It seems to feature a comparison between the elements, perhaps pushing thoughts toward a unification or sorts. That's the implication for me on this. Like looking at a cross cut and polished stone that infers a landscape.

Very rich and inviting. The subject holds strong even with all that interpretive activity that is going on inside my head as I view this. It feels very like a poem to me owing to the rhythmic character I'm getting here.

Go Pat!

I had to enlarge the picture just to more fully enjoy it. Lovely colors! Lovely scene! I have spent a lot of time in the Blue Ridge and enjoyed many rides on the Parkway.
