It is not unusual for me to take a painting so far, then put it aside for an undetermined period of time. This pause may be caused by a concern for the direction a piece is moving in, or not moving in, or perhaps something new(er) has pushed its way to the main stage of my focus, or many other reasons and excuses really.
With this work, which was started but not completed almost a year ago, I was caught between 2 different styles of finish and attention to detail and decided it best to leave it alone for a time. Jump forward to this winter, and there was this half finished painting that still held lots of promise in my eyes, but needed to be brought to some form of completion. And here it is.
An early snow while the fall colours are still strong in the woods, on a bright sunny day, is a rare and miraculous visual treat as seen here, lots of different colours from the palette played a role. Painting is 60' x 30' and is currently available for purchase at the Kilby Gallery. For further details contact the Kilby Gallery at 519 372 7971 or firstname.lastname@example.org
