water soluble oil on canvas board (9″ × 12″)

a quick study looking south down the street outside my work.

I remember being struck by the way the light intermingled with the shadows cast by the trees.

    I like this very much indeed – the unconventional composition (receding to two different points – the blue and the cream) and colour relationships (the silvery green with the warm yellow at the top, and the red-purple with ultramarine and orange) are wonderful.

    It reminds me a little of some Bay Area Figuration as well as some of the beautiful early Fauve paintings by Matisse – I know it is a small painting, but it has a big feel.

  • I am truly honored by your thoughtful words, Jonathan. Your descriptive praise inspired me to look at this painting with new eyes. You have really made my day! Thank you. Thank you.
