Description
"This is a painting that is tumultuous and powerful on one level and that also has subtleties. There is a figure of a man walking up the mountain path with a servant over in the middle right, sort of hidden away, and then trees that skewer the whole landscape, so to speak, holding it all together. Jen I uses just little areas of color to tie things together. Green is repeated up above so you can see where the path goes, how you climb up it. It looks like it has been done very casually, spontaneously, and probably was, and at the same time it's very solidly put together by this great master."
