Sometimes, I enjoy playing the "what if" game in my paintings. I paint with pure colors whose intrinsic values (light or dark) match the view. I pretend I am only seeing in black and white and choose the colors that look like they would match if they too were black and white. The result of this exercise creates fascinating color combinations that I wouldn't have otherwise considered.
This original oil painting of a path, in a wide field, leading to a great oak, reminded me of the sheer joy and meditative qualities of peering through a kaleidoscope. Who can resist this child toy that opens up dimentions unimaginable? The emotive quality of the brush and knife strokes cannot be replicated. I will never be able to paint this exact painting again. The moment is gone, and time has moved on. Yet, the place and moment are forever captured in paint on linen.
This painting is unframed, so you can choose framing that suits every decor.
