notes and impressions

part 8 (January 17, 2020)

 

The paintings continue to grow into their surroundings.  Less and less are they intruders.

 

 

(four) Kameoka 

 

亀岡 | Kameoka

 

A fog over the mountains.  The forest is damp.  Forever damp.  There is a fine layer of moss beginning to grow over the painting.  A new color.  The reds more and more muted.  It blends with the rock.  Connected.

 

 

 

(one) Miyama

 

美山 | Miyama

 

The warm winter has confused the sakura.  No further developments to the painting.

 

 

 

(two) Keihoku 

 

京北 | Keihoku

 

The layer of dirt that is always decorating the surface of the painting appears more permanent.  The stream down the mountain just a trickle.  Everything is quiet.

 

 

 

(three) Kuta

 

久多 | Kuta

 

A little snow on the highest peaks.  It's a little disappointing to find not even a melted patch.  The reverse side of the painting is turning green with moss.  The front is stubbornly unchanged from the last visit.
