THOUGHTS ON PAINTING
Capturing the tranquil feeling one might get when lounging beside a rushing river, the Dzoraget Painting features imagery found in one of nature's most beautiful settings. The water in the river depicted here runs tranquilly down its designated path until it hits the disruption of the rocks. Here, it dips and dives in small waterfalls down to the next leg of its trip. Shortly down the path, two people can be seen washing their clothes in the river, and a house sits in the distance. Surrounding the rock-laden riverscape is an autumn scene that is complete with orange and red bushes and trees.
