I travel through Iowa at different seasons of the year and as such, have noticed how the colors of the sky and land change accordingly. There are many beautiful hills on the farms in Iowa and this painting was inspired by a trip in early evening during late summer. ..This is a companion piece to "Summer Melon Fields"........
This painting is framed in a black lacquered satin finish wood float frame that measures 11x11x2 inches outside dimensions.
Acrylic paint, mixed mediums and collaged objects, are the primary materials I employ in constructing these abstract, landscape based explorations. My paintings perch at the intersection of recognizable imagery and the abstract, giving voice to the spiritual and temporal confluence of the world we inhabit. Among my several series of work, you will find paintings inspired by satellite imagery, space telescopes, geologic exploration, music and the almighty leaf and seed. Because I love color so much, I endeavor to give it a luminous quality that will draw one’s eye to the canvas and move it effortlessly in compositional formation, unfolding a unique vision of landscape. Each painting contains many layers of acrylic color glazes that give an apparent depth to the surface; Textural elements are incorporated through the addition of materials and objects I often find in the street, and by subtraction of surface using scratching, scraping and writing. Look at a distance and look up close; there is much to be seen and experienced at both levels. Thank you for visiting my profile!
