Silver Hills by Katharine Weber. Media: Mixed Media.
This painting depicts rain falling gently on the foothills of Northern California. Rain has become a significant event, as the state battles periods of severe drought and, alternately, excessive rainfall. “Silver Hills” employs fabric and acrylic to create this rich, dimensional painting. The sculptural folds in the surface become translucent in the process, allowing the painting beneath to show through to varying degrees. Beneath the cloth is a painting of Northern California’s foothills.
