Artist's Insight:

This painting was made in response to larger works that were being created at the same time. The larger works were much more dramatic with more expressive brushstrokes and movement. I named this painting Shhh… because I wanted to depict a moment of silence and stillness experienced in nature. It is now practically a novelty to be silent and still, let alone in nature. This painting depicts this novelty and romanticizes the colors one might see (much like how digital image filters do) in real life in order to express the stillness and silence of a distant horizon.
