The Walk consists of 47 oil landscape paintings produced by Ray Sumser in his studio in Larkspur, California in 2018. Painted together in bursts, these pieces are wholly informed by the hills of the Golden Gate National Recreation Area and Mount Tamalpais State Park. The Walk is an ecstatic experiential account of the bountiful California landscape.
Perspective changes constantly. A landscape appears one way and is altogether different in closer relied. Never static, it moves with color and emotion, light and rhythm. The landscape accommodates and shapes the imagination with an abundance of information all pointing to beauty.
