Idaho Fence – Acrylic on Small 4″ x 6″ Canvas

There is some really beautiful country between Blackfoot and Driggs, Idaho.  Gentle rolling hills of various shades of gold take my breath away.   I am visiting some paintings from the archives while I am working too much to get very many other paintings done.

I am working on a painting of Park College Power Plant, in Parkville, MO, which I think looks like maybe it’s a bar.  Hard to say, since I found it on Google Street View.  🙂

About Nichiren Daishonin

Thirteenth century Japanese monk Nichiren Daishonin is known as the founder of the branch of Buddhism that bears his name. Born Zennichi-maro in a fishing village in 1222, he changed his name when he founded “True Buddhism,” a return to the non-discriminatory basis of the religion. His huge following and his dire predictions made him unpopular with rulers; according to legend, he was about to be killed when a freak astronomical phenomenon blinded the executioner and saved Daishonin’s life. He died on October 13, 1282.

    This looks so textural…almost like fiber art. Nice!!

    The gold and orange and blue and purple take my breath away. So much goodness in such a small space. You are a masterful painter, Beth.
