    Description

    Acryilic pen & ink on Masonite panel. Depicts the kind of scene we all too often walk past without seeing, yet which is full of the variety of Nature. Even weeds can be beautiful! I loved the contrast of old stones and the burnt tree trunk - both dead elements surrounded by all the bursting energy of Spring. The Location was on a small island just off Stavanger in Norway.

    THE MAGIC OF NATURE

    Wonderful contrast between fresh green growth of Spring and the ancient rocks, with subtle colouring. The burnt out tree provides a solid base.

    Feels like I'm there

    Love the orange which brings the viewer through the scene from back to front and around again. Sharp edges give it a photographic quality while chunky strokes in the water soften the scene and make it more human. Love this painting.

    Depth Perfection

    Masterful use of color temperature to create sense of depth, distance, and the fullness of the sky. Hate to give 4 stars for originality; doesn't need to be original to be amazing but it is a landscape.
