This became more of a study of layers, like a cake, of texture, elements, and complexity juxtaposed in between creaminess and tranquility. There are three manifestations of rock that are all entirely different— mountains, slate wall, river rock. Then three forms of flora— palms, other palms (I’m not sure what exactly those center 3 are, I think they’re palms or yucca) and grass. Three forms of calm— the sky, concrete, grass. Everything in this one came in threes, including the ladies going out for a walk. - Carrie Graber
