Forest at the Edge
This abstract landscape painting represents a large forest at the edge of a massive energy field. I don't imagine the energy tidal wave to be a threat but more that the forest is a place from which to observe it. I represented the energy with jagged tidal wave shapes and a somewhat unusual color, yet it still seeds little pink clouds into the blue sky. And throughout the forest in the foreground, you can see energy seeping up from the ground like dew. So this picture depicts energy that inspires awe rather than fear. Where is this energy coming from? The Earth itself. The pink Moon regards it all calmly, knowing she will play her own part in the energy game.
I've been incorporating new colors into my palette, and this features a couple of them. As I work more with the milk-based paint known as casein, more information about how to use effectively is revealed. I learned a lot from this painting, but I also just enjoyed combining the glazes of pale ultramarine blue with dark perylene pigments. I like using a lot of layers, and you can see that more clearly in the detail images.
The giclee prints are on 100% cotton archival fine art paper, colors are matched to the original by the artist, and they are signed on the back.
