In this piece, artist Crystal DiPietro confronts her fears of a difficult climb in the desert near her home. "The steep cliffs and shadows were daunting and beautiful," says Crystal. "The watercolor washes are a complementary contrast to the detailed lines of the drawing. I used this dichotomy to emulate the softness and harshness of the desert terrain."

Crystal DiPietro

Las Vegas, Nevada

Many artists work with the landscape, but Crystal DiPietro sees her works as different from most in the genre. “I tend not to see landscapes as soft and pretty, but as rugged, dramatic and colorful.” Many of her works depict wild storms and moody sunsets. She spends a lot of time in remote spots and uses layers of color to create her compositions. Her work hovers between a brief impression of a scene and a pure dream. Crystal's landscapes of southern Utah seem to undulate and continuously change. What's interesting, though, is that these mountains and valleys seem to do the same thing in person. In these areas, the view changes constantly throughout the day as the light shifts, throwing shadows of faces, mazes and alien patterns across the cliff faces. Crystal impressively captures what's there, and what seems to be but isn't.
