Painting - Oil
This plein air oil painting was done not far from my home in Southern Utah. You really don't have to go far to find a great spot to paint around here. I named it Tucked Away because it was just tucked around the bend on a dirt road next to the river. There were actually cows roaming around on the other side of the river but I decided to leave them out at the end. I felt like adding cows would have too much going on in the painting to be pleasing. This was done in early March and you can still see snow on the mountains in the distance. The red rocks in the distance are what people think of when they think of Southern Utah. What was supposed to be a nice sunny day turned cloudy faster than anticipated. It started to get a little chilly and I think the color palette reflects the cool air and late winter. I hope to go back later in the spring once leaves are on the trees. This was my very first plein air oil painting, I hope you like! Thank you so much for looking at my site. An artists drawing or painting is part of their soul. I hope that you feel something when you look at my artwork. I want it to speak to you; to move you! My paintings are done in a very loose, impressionistic style. I am not giving you every detail. When you look at my artwork, your eyes will automatically fill in the details bringing you back to a place or feeling that you've had before. I have always loved loose, abstract, or impressionistic artwork for the romantic feel of it. I want to keep looking as I receive flashes of nostalgia, and that's what I hope you feel when you look at my work. Please comment and let me know what you like.
