Sitting under a shady tree in the summer, your eyes closed, daydreaming... That thought, that fleeting memory was my main inspiration for this creation. The comfort of nature re-imagined in bright colors and thoughts.
This piece is meant to transport you to that moment in your life. The shadowy background of hazy figures against a prominent, vibrant tree.
The thick, black outline provides some grounding and containment for possibilities.
The painting is UV-varnished in semi-gloss, while the edges are painted black, making it ready to hang without any frame in your favorite space.
I began painting at a young age and art is a significant part of my life. It is a meditative activity that allows me to take the images and concepts in my mind and actualize them. I am heavily influenced by the American masters of Abstract of the 1950's and 1960's, along with the color beauty of the Impressionists. I am a Veteran of the United States Marine Corps and I want to use art to show the beautiful and human side of our existence, outside of conflict. A portion of all proceeds from the sale of my art pieces goes to various local and national causes that support my fellow Veterans. Thanks for your patronage and support.
