TREE LINES

For the past week I have had several canvases "in play", one of which I posted yesterday. The painting today began with a textured white-gray background, waiting for an idea for the foreground which eventually materialized as a black treeline with bits of warm color coming through. I've used this approach in previous paintings, but in this case was striving for a stark B&W impression.

It may seem contradictory, but I think the striking thing in many of your works like this one is how the composition can be so simple and uncluttered and at the same time so imaginative and original. The strong color is of course icing on the cake.
