    Description

    High in the Mountains in early June I was hiking with a mission find the most beautiful little grove of Aspens I could find. I came over a small ridge and there they were in the shallow valley below. I hike down and into the small glen of trees. The light had just burned through the light cloud cover and illuminated the area with an intense yellow light. I quickly made sketches and notes to capture the scene. After taking a couple of photographs I made a small painted study, from this the larger studio painting was created. This painting is done in oil using impressionist colors and very direct brushwork. This painting is original and one of a kind and will make a wonderful addition to your collection.

    This painting is inspired by the California Impressionist painters like Guy Rose and others. The painting is painted on cotton triple primed canvas with professional grade oil paint. The canvas is stretched on 1 1/2" x 2 1/2" professional wooden stretcher bars. The painting will be delivered in an enforced cardboard box crate with high-density foam for protection. The price of the painting includes the shipping. Contact me with any questions about the painting artist@kevinmccainart.com

    I like how you showed an emotion with abstract shapes. You definitely get the point across without words.

    Subtle and beautiful

    The subtle transitions of color are really well executed.

    Dynamic

    Fleeting kiss or Salsa Dancing? There's a dynamism and enough of a hint of figures to suggest different things to each viewer. I see Salsa dancers with others swirling around them.

    pure anguish

    Highly skilled artist. Everything reinforces the anguish emanating from the child; light up high, ominous dark below, cool tones of hair, wintery coolness of background, selective warm tones of face, centered composition.
