|Della Norta, 36x48", oil/panel (click to enlarge)|
This painting above (Della Norta) is one in a long series that makes use of large clouds as a spacial device to contrast against the massive clump of trees and foliage. I like to contrast of heavy grounded form against air and space. The composition is formal and centred. The piece has been completed slowly over the last six months with layers added and allowed weeks to dry.
