LES PLANARDS 22"x 30" oil on canvas $2,000
There is a colorful perfection of refinement
and balance in the French countryside. This land has been
cultivated and maintained for centuries, creating a symphony
of color and form that conforms to natures laws of renewal and
decay. Late in the summer, when the harvest is near, this field
of amaranth is at its peak of color. The richly textured
field, framed by the dramatic luminosity of sky and clouds, creates
a pleasing multi-textured composition. The soft rolling
hills provide the perfect transition from the foreground to the
infinite distance of the sky, a pleasing combination of
color, detail and depth. The brilliant light the glows through
the clouds dances across the field and brings to life this moment.
The richly textured plants in the foreground draw the eye forward
and then into the infinite as the plants soften and merge into
the middle ground, finally leading to the brilliant sky.
