*In this painting I have endeavored to reduce the landscape down to its absolute minimum, focusing purely on the line of salt-bush on the horizon, with one solitary bird hovering in the air, to give the impression of the raw empty heat of a mid day summer where nothing stirs until l the cool of the evening. . .

    As if the planet had condensed into a single horizontal line, maybe traveling at great speed, and the birds both in the atmosphere. Very interesting challenge you made for yourself. Interesting images.
