Subduction Zone painting by Patrick Beste is painted in acrylic on paper. The painting measures 26″ x 19″. Predominant brown and red hues are accented with the fiery red-oranges and yellows along with smoky blues and dusky violets one expects to see when a powerful, awe-inspiring geological event occurs. Deep paint creates surfaces so appropriately rocky in texture that one can almost hear the continental shelves grinding upon each other and smell the steam rising from the heated stone. A brilliant piece to hang wherever one would like a reminder of the Earth’s magnificence and awesome power.
