Question for the artist?

Artist's description:

A foreground of smoldering red earth covered the lower two thirds of the canvas. I added a purple-glazed sky to the upper left, pierced by an intense glowing, sun. A turquoise green flock of birds scattered from my palette knife away from the left side of the sun. Then I was tempted to mirror the flock with red-orange gnashes of palette knife. To contrast the gnashes, I scraped over them with thick cadmium yellow to draw forth the brightness and the heat. When I began to lay mixed photo-blue and aquamarine shapes over top those yellow scrapes, I saw a vibrancy and impact explode. Like floating scraps of blue crepe paper, the shapes appeared to flutter in front of the hot sun, while the flock headed home before the sunset.

I get so inspired by color, that as a painting progresses and my imagination takes shape, the canvas itself drives my next movement until the piece exhibits a vision and a feeling that is complete.

I will sign your painting on which ever side you prefer.

Currently on exhibit outside of Denver, Colorado, and available to ship NOV. 30, 2014. I completely apologize your inconvenience of dispatch date beyond three days as noted in the shipping specification. I look forward to hearing from you with any questions.

Please note that the in-situ image shows an additional mat and frame that may be added but are not included or necessary. The deep 1-1/2" edges of your canvas have been painted as extensions of the main composition.
