Painting: Acrylic on Canvas.
This moody rendering of a snowy deserted street captures that hushed stillness of a winter evening. Subtle colors abound, and the thickly applied paint and minimal detail help to suggest the actual weight of a heavy snow. The gently curved street pulls the eye into the center of the composition, where one can see the outline of a distant church. The surface of my works is textured, partly from the way in which I prepare the surface, and partly due to the style of painting, with thick paint applied with energy. This is deliberate, as I want to create works in which the "hand of the artist" is evident. Soft lighting is important when hanging, enhancing the color and energy, and minimizing the surface texture. The sides are painted brown, and the work comes ready to hang.
