This is a new piece titled Rocky Shoreline, which is 9"w x 12"h. While I enjoy all the blues and greens of summer, it seems as though I can't work fast enough to paint the summer season before the leaves change color and the seasons change. I try to pack as much fun and activity into summer as I can, and some of that fun and activity includes works like this one featured today. This piece is quite simple in composition with the three birch trees and a rocky shoreline. But when you have rich blues and greens, you don't need a bunch of elements to cloud the composition ... you just need the vibrant blues and greens of the summer season. Add a hammock, a deck, a BBQ grill ... and maybe some mosquitos and you have all the ingredients of the summer season. :) This piece is part of a show titled Paintings & Prints at Art of Hair on First in Duluth, MN now through Sept. 2015.
