The other day Mr. F and I hiked up a hill in nearby Trinidad to a spot looking out over the ocean. As we gazed out over the Pacific, I wondered at the way the colors in the water faded into each other in distinctive strips. Sacramento artist Micah Crandall-Bear paints color field paintings that distill the landscape into saturated lines of color.
Gentle washes of color sweep over the canvases, light filtering softly through, each piece recalling a moment in time and place, never to be experienced again. Saturated skies reflect their colored light and bathe every other hue.
