|At the Pond's Edge, Emerging Spring|
Oil on canvas, 48 x 60 Private collection
Exhibited: Sorelle Gallery, New Canaan, CT
This painting is evidence of considerable sessions in the studio with innumerable color experiments and before you know it, a fall painting became spring.
When viewing it close up, it is a painting with literally thousands of lace-like marks with each color uniquely contributing to the whole. Everything is done with restraint and a light touch. The end result is a line of trees with substantial mass.
Except for the base of the trees, all of the foliage and sky edges are delicate and barely there with the early spring light diffused everywhere.
My thanks to the collector that took this home.
