Kelly Kane’s Pick of the Week: Jebal Akhdar
“When I talk about painting in the desert, I think a lot of people imagine me standing in the middle of sand dunes. To the contrary, much of the landscape I experience while painting looks more like the mountains of Utah. [In this painting,] the dance of shapes between shadows and blinding light create a stepping-stone effect as you move through the piece.” ~ Matt Ryder, “Painting the Middle East”
