BLUE RIDGE (2018) 24″ x 44″
This piece was inspired by a photograph taken by my dad, John F. Plymale, at Pipestem State Park in West Virginia. If you ever find yourself at latitude 37.523400, longitude -80.994, look around and see if you recognize the view! I was born in West Virginia, and though I haven’t lived in the state for decades, this landscape still feels familiar.
I used palest blue and charcoal gray yarns to “paint” the soft edges of this smoky-hazy vista.
