Road to UMA
Road to UMA 11x14, acrylics on canvas SOLD
My latest. I'm getting tired of painting snow scenes, tired of the cold wind and the sloppy roads. I'm ready for summer, and this is my ode to summers past. I painted this in a slightly different style than my usual, with the light and shadow flowing in a loose and more watery manner. I wish my digital camera did a better job of displaying color properly; in real life, the bright and dark contrasts in this painting are so intense they just pop. It jumps off the wall at you from all the way across the room and beckons you to come closer.
