Forest and Stream Tapestry of Color

Title: Forest and Stream Tapestry of Color

Size: large 20 x 24

Medium: oil on stretched gallery wrapped canvas


Click to enlarge if you would like to see why I call this "tapestry of color". True to impressionism, up close, my work is a like a weaving of many colors, like intricate threads they come together and from far away you see the image. I have to like the painting both up close, including the texture, and from far away, so I developed this method of layering wet upon dry paint and then wet upon wet to get a real impressionistic, painterly look. I hope you enjoy it's rich color and texture as much as I enjoyed painting it!

Goes on auction tonight...don't miss it!
