Purple Mountain Majesties

April 20, 2022

It was a coloristic decision. Not one influenced by song lyrics. Honest! But there is something iconic about purple mountains isn’t there? And I feel that, given the fact I hold in my possession a valid and recently renewed artistic license, I can paint those mountains any darn color I choose. Even purple!

Marshall Noice | Two Ponderosa | Oil on Canvas | 30x60"

And it is a beautifully hopeful song lyric. And we can never have too much hope.

“Oh, beautiful, for spacious skies”

Lyrics by Katherine Lee Bates
