The Oxbow

Here's a super sneak preview of a project at a very very early stage.

This is a film concerning Thomas Cole and a bunch of stuff, mainly through the prism of his painting "The Oxbow" and his architectural work on the Ohio State Capital.

Above: the painting.

Below: The Oxbow today

Either the mountain has shifted, or the painter reworked the landscape to fit his own scheme.

Just as creative people don't need to be on drugs to come up with outlandish ideas, painters don't need and picture perfect to create a landscape.
