At the top of my painter heros list would have to be Andrew Weyth, the late great 'rural realist' painter whos' riveting images struck a powerful chord with so many. Besides his haunting and unconventionally beautiful images, I am also influenced in were he sourced his subject matter. Everything he painted seemingly could be found within a walking distant from his two homes. The variety and depth he was able to mine from this limited world is truly amazing, and inspirational.
Just behind my home winds a little creek that twists and turns impossibly as it passes through our farm. Every bend affords a new painting possibility, this one is viewed from a little foot bridge and is usually accompanied by the sound of the water running over the rocks under the bridge.
The frame was chosen to highlight the bit of colour found in the painting and is constructed from reclaimed lumber, measuring 51" by 33". This new work is currently available for purchase at The Kilby Gallery .
