Artist's description:

Title: "Migration"
Medium: oil on 2 canvases (diptych)
Size: 60 x 96 inches

"Migration" is one of the 4 extra-large diptych abstracts I painted specifically for a solo exhibition in Midtown Manhattan that was in the lobby of the TIME Building. The whole series was inspired by a recent trip I took to South Africa for a safari. The whole experience was incredible but there was one that stood out most in my mind. We had been viewing a group of lions feasting on a cape buffalo they had recently killed when all of a sudden hundreds of buffalo came silently to confront the lions. It was a tense standoff. The lions backed down! Then the cape buffalos turned around a headed toward a watering hole. We got there first and experienced the whole thing. They kicked up so much dust, the air in the bright sun was white. And, they just kept coming!

I painted this painting with many layers of white. You can't tell in the photo, but it has a lot of paint on it! I kept the other colors to a minimum to emphasize the line and the movement.

I am very proud of this painting and it looks fabulous on a grey or colored wall. It is currently being exhibited at another venue in Midtown, but if it is purchased, I can get it and replace it with another painting! Two huge shows in one year!

It is a diptych and the two separate canvases will be shipped rolled in a tube. Any framer can re-stretch them on gallery stretchers. If needed, I will be glad to send the hardware used to attach the two stretchers together, although they could easily hang together with a small space in between as well.
