Painting: Acrylic on Canvas.
A seasonal landscape with figure which hearkens back to an earlier time, this is an homage to Van Gogh and his many works which depict and celebrate the everyday people. Detail here is minimal, allowing the expressive paint handling to carry the work. 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 of the gallery-wrapped canvas are painted brown, and the work comes wired and ready to hang.
