Landscape Hardy...Wessex Weather

Artist's Description

“Through intense, vivid descriptions of the fields, the seasons, and the weather, Hardy’s Wessex attains a physical presence in the novels and acts as a mirror of the psychological conditions and the fortunes of the characters”…weather patterns reflect their inner dramas ….weather patterns correspond with their ambiguous motives …the weather itself is often depicted as a character in his stories..
In this painting I combined my impressions of several on his books…“The Return of the Native” coming to mind first of all…this is stormy weather, water lapping the edges of the sand bank, soon to cover it completly when the storm is at full spate…the kind of weather that echoes the storm in Eustacia’s soul
