I have had the idea of creating a piece with a gigantic paintbrush for a number of years. A month ago, on a walk, a friend started drawing on a frozen, snow dusted lake with what looked like a giant pencil. I joined in, and the inspiration was reignited. 

The past month I have been making my own paintbrush from a fallen tree in the woods, collected horse hair from a friend's farm for the bristles, and a lot of research, trial and error has gone in to make my own pigments, inks and paints out of natural sources. 

Yesterday the dream became a reality with these two pieces in the series, Dance of the Mountains.
