Artist's Statement:
“I am particularly interested in unique lighting effects and how these effects reflect, refract, diffuse and obscure detail. It is the ethereal quality of light that intrigues me. In painting natural or inanimate objects, I am constantly trying to discover and interpret interesting design, shapes, and color harmonies to stimulate the eye. Elevating the human spirit and arousing a sense of discovery is what excites me as an artist.”
— Peter Adams

About This Painting:
This painting was done at Cedar Breaks in Utah. I was inspired by the way the afternoon light illuminated the colorful strata formations of these time-worn eroded cliffs. The Indians called Cedar Breaks the 'Circle of Fire.' This scenery gave me a chance to express my love of creating simple abstract shapes in depicting the rock formations and the shady trees in the foreground.
