Yellow Fields 2

LG-Yellow Fields 2 w Den

My darling husband agreed to be photographed, to help show the scale of this painting. Isn’t he a nice guy?

Of all the autumn colors I love, yellow is the one which takes my breath away.  Our trees aren’t far into turning, but the yellows in this field we drove by?…oh my!  Needless to say, the star of this painting had to be yellow! And I mean *bright* yellow! And lots of shades of yellow.

The full painting is below. Plus a couple close-ups, because there’s lots of wonderful visual texture in this big painting.

In order to better absorb the textures and character of such a large painting (this is a 36″ x 48″), I hope you’ll enjoy the close-ups below.

I’ve enjoyed having this on my walls for a couple weeks, and now it is destined to be delivered to one of the galleries that represent me.

Happy Spring,

Karin

Winter’s pains shall not last forever.

Hope of new life

hums its melodies.

Vibrations, silent at first,

crescendo steadily 

into a boisterous chorus of praise.

Perry Road

Perry Road, 36″ x 48″ acrylic on canvas. Available.

You’ll probably notice this isn’t a typical composition for me. However, those trees were proud as can be, standing in the middle of the field. How could I break their hearts and not paint them front and center?

Hopefully you can zoom in to see the farm in the far distance. This was a truly inspiring sight, on Perry Road, just west of A-37. How blessed am I, that these oh-so-varied rural scenes are only minutes from our house?!

Layers

I love when paintings surprise me…taking me on a path that wasn’t planned. Such was the case toward the end of this piece.

One of these days soon, I’m going to figure out how to outsmart my iPad camera, which tends to take everything in “cool” tones. In the meantime, I’ll insert my recently-common disclaimer: the painting is a little “warmer” in color than this photo.

Apparently, collectors of my art enjoy skies as much as I do, so I continue to delve into this limitless subject. It’s a new exploration with each new sky. I find endless fascination in the many different settings, lighting conditions, color combinations, moods… .

If any of these works (or the other pieces on my Available Paintings page) strike a chord with you, and you’d like to surround yourself with a peaceful trip to the lake or country by adding an original piece of art to your home, feel free to contact me through the Contact tab, or call me directly at 616-723-6600 with any questions.

I hope you enjoy the latest paintings to come off the “easel.” (Actually, I don’t use easels anymore; for any artists out there who paint on large canvases and want to contact me for more information about how I paint against the wall, I have a most wonderful set-up now for the past number of months, and it has greatly improved my productivity and organization.)

Many blessings, friends!
