Earth Third Planet From The Sun, WA
Painting - Oil
As a 'plein air' painter, one who paints on location in the open air, capturing a subject before the light has changed is the challenge. Look closely at this painting and you will see the spontaneity of brush, the exciting overlay of impasto paint, using the knife to scrape down to the imprimatura or underpainting. It always amazes me to stand back and look at what I've done and that the simple tools of knife and brush can express light and so much more. Like an old person, this tree has weathered many winters. It seems to be sleeping through the winter, like myself, it dreams of the warm days of summer.
