A print of Garrowby Hill, Hockney’s 1998 oil on canvas hung in my bathroom when I was a child. I love this painting — but Hockney’s new era of computer drawing isn’t really my thing. His Yosemite iPad drawings put me off — they dulled my interpretation of this intricate wilderness — probably because Yosemite has been a cherished place for me since I was a kid.
Yosemite high country is no facade — it is truly “the range of light”. The Valley is accessible…so why haven’t you visited? Autumn, winter, spring, and summer in Yosemite. Each season offers a brand new perspective.
With some snow, the cross country ski (or snowshoe) jaunt out to Dewey Point on the South Rim will be a-callin!
