About MERDIAN - Exploring Boundaries

Meridian Peak barely pushes its nose above timberline along a ridge that swings south off of Mount Evans.  Visible from the Denver Plains, I would guess that only a few folks could point out the peak. Yet, from its rocky outcrops, one can survey the Mt Evans Basin to the north and the plains to the east. The peak is located along a ridge dividing watersheds and weather patterns. It rests indecisively between timberline and spruce forests. A median point.


Meridian’s rocky point is hidden by spruce and ponderosa from the porch of our cabin which rests in its shadow. That diminutive peak asserts its presence on our psyche as thunderstorms crackling with turbulence rumble down the ridge and past our cabin. An early morning start will have me hiking and painting along its shoulders by noon.


The area is a constant source of inspiration. Dramatic weather shifts present abstract compositions that challenge my artistic approach.  It has become the mentor I seek out when compositions and paintings become stagnant. The complexity of the shapes and arrangements are often daunting, yet, once into the composition, I will see the larger value and color shapes that tie it all together.


Meridian Peak has come to symbolize my quest to paint between realism and abstraction, between the conventional and unconventional. Meridian Peak has been a means of exploring boundaries in my art.
