L’OMBRE DU CANYON  23"x 19" oil on canvas (framed)  $1,600

This unpretentious and ancient scene offers striking contrasts and vibrant colors, and the dramatic effect of sunlight and shadow. The shaded canyon slope, almost surreal as a cooler background, brings to life the brilliant greens, oranges and golds of the illuminated foreground. There is a softness in the textures that allows the viewer to absorb the entire scene, each part a compliment of the whole. Evident also is the existence of centuries of human labor, the terraced hillside, partially in ruin, is still very much alive and occupied with a timeless quality of function and beauty. The brush strokes here are simple, minimal, and bold, to effectively portray the essence of the scene. Shadow defines light, warm colors emerge as cool colors recede, and the eye is drawn to a few details the bring life to nature’s endless play.
