The palette knife was used quite a bit in this painting to help develop the interesting layers of color. I'm working to deepen some of my artistic inclinations and to provide the viewer the opportunity to spend more time investigating the painting. Paintings need to speak for themselves, since their artist isn't always there to interpret, and every artist wants the viewer to stay with the painting long enough to see it's depth and to develop a relationship of their own. The subtle layers of color help to lead the viewers eye and the strong atmospheric perspective takes you back into space. I like this one so much that the price will be a little more than usual.
We had expected to be with our dear families up north this holiday, but will be here on Marco instead. We would have been driving, so maybe with all the snow and ice, it's a blessing in disguise. I'll be thinking of them and still enjoying the family we have here.
May the best of family, food and gifts be yours on this holiday, and may the magic of Christmas bring you peace and joy. Merry Christmas to all! SOLD
