Art Insights

This upbeat dynamic landscape is made of chalk pastel on paper.  

I was drawn to this piece for its bold marks and bright use of colors. 

Hints of a darker background push through the white and purple clouds adding a feeling of depth and dimensionality that adds grandeur to the big sky. 

The warm and bright summer morning sunlight boldly strikes the trees and land almost blindingly at times.

All these grand, bold strokes lead the viewer to the background mountains and beyond. I get a sense that these mountains and sky continue on endlessly outside the edges of the paper and that these fields are still swaying in the sun.  

The surprising marks of wild colors mixed with the beaming light and pulsing motion captures a timeless moment  that is teeming with life and beauty.
