At the top of a meadow at sunset on this late afternoon in December I came upon this scene. This contains many of my recent pictorial elements, the walls, the birches, the twilight, and that wonderful winter colored sky filled with snow showers.
In this painting I am experimenting with low light levels at late twilight. The fading color at twilight is a function of our eyes not seeing the light rays reflecting off of the objects. The color is there, we just can’t see it. I am exaggerating the hue saturation to create a dream-like quality. This series of works are heavily textured with layers of paint and tool marks evident on the surface.
I call these paintings psalms in praise for the spirit that I sense in the landscape.
