Quiet and serene, this #muted artwork was created after hurricane Matthew hit the east coast. We had substantial flooding followed by a cold front. Missing my NY roots, the quiet greys and light blues, browns and whites are reminiscent of dormant seasons commingled with the ever present life in the southern states. Basically, it's NY meets GA, in my imagination. The broken, wind torn fences, bare limbed trees, as well as the receding water are indicative of what hurricane force wind damage can do and what we, as a community, are left with, even after extensive cleanup.
Extremely soft in color, these blended acrylic colors, are easy on the eye, drawing the observer in for a closer look at the detail within. Stormclouds receding and blue skies peeking through give hope to a brighter tomorrow.
Painted gallery style a frame is not required but would deeply enhance its importance and give more substance to its meaning to those of us feeling a tad displaced.
This piece is my largest creation to date, and only my 6th painting. I apologize to those of you who consider it inept, but I am still on a learning curve as a self taught artist and promise to improve with time.
