Grateful Notices: Saccades V oil, 48 x 60 inches

Saccades V oil on canvas,  48 x 60 inches  Private collection, Illinois

I have enjoyed this series of Saccade oils. Each is a view into a forest with very little sky or foreground. The idea is not to have a prominent focal point, but instead to create a space that pulls the eye in many directions

More information about others in the series and the meaning of Saccades.

This oil is not a portrait of a forest but instead the equivalent of what a forest does with the distinct verticals, shadows, lights and that indefinable complexity in between.

It is a very pleasurable exercise to create a slice of the forest (when things are going well) and to use any colors, from or other means possible to bring it to life.

I was delighted to be able to spend time with the couple that purchased this just completed work and thank you for the honor of adding it to your collection.
