New Work "Wilbur Returns"
Wilbur Returns 28" x 40" - Oil on Mounted Linen - $20,000
The title of the painting is a play off the title from a winter painting done in the same area a few years ago titled "Come Back Wilbur."
I am usually traveling during the best of the Fall season so made up my mind this year to do a major painting from life before the leaves were gone. This painting is a graduate study in unity and variety. Being a "flat light" picture with very little shadow I had my challenges with defining form and making strong bits of color take their place in the distance. Sometimes odd challenges pique my curiosity, like the dried-out pond in the foreground or the plastic wrapped hay bales in the middle distance. Anyway, regardless of all of the subjective choices I make in a painting, the truth of nature always keeps me in a humble place.
