Light Canopy


Light Canopy, 9 x 12 in.
sold

I love finding a grove of spindly young oaks. Although my favorites are the natural groves that have a shape of their own, it's not unusual to find these small oaks kept in check along fence lines, where some unique vista is revealed through the trunks. These are some of my favorite views--I look for what the view will be almost as if I'm anticipating what is inside a wrapped gift.

Very nice. I love the dark silhouettes against the bright fields beyond. Love the dappled sunlight, too.

P.S. The line of light along the horizon reminds me of Monet, and of a show I saw in Germany of Monet's Poplars that made me cry every time I described it, because I felt him in the room. So lovely Julie.

This painting is spectacular. The verticals so nicely break up the horizon, yet I am still drawn to the distant fields. Bravo!

Love the energy in the brush strokes and Jennifer is right about the eye being drawn to the fields. Love it!

I am always attracted to this kind of looking through trees thing, but my attempts are just not what I want to see. This though, is lovely the way the subject is the light in the backgorund. Very nice.

Amazing paintings!

This is just great. Unlike most of your work which I find peaceful, there is something -in a good way- unsettling about it, just like in Van Gogh's paintings. That must be the tension in the brushstrokes. The type of work I can look at again and again and never get bore of it.
