This piece was inspired by a hike on a stunning ridge leading to two prominent peaks in the Tushar Mountains. I was dealing with an injury, and the shadowed peaks seemed symbolic of the obstacles I was facing. At the same time, their beauty encouraged me to continue.

This painting is on a gallery wrapped canvas with white finished edges. It comes varnished and ready to hang.

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.
