Laying in the grass and watching the sky
Acrylic and oil on canvas
120 x 160 cm
"Laying in the grass and watching the sky" is an ode to stopping time and reveling in the nature world. It's title is self explanatory and its size is human scale. It is a painting that beckons the viewer to step inside of it, to hear the crickets and smell the scent of the grass and flora. It is created to be an overwhelming, subtle yet powerful, ever-changing call to stillness. It is a painting made with innumerable layers of color and dimensions, and a chameleon, mutating with the light, the season, the weather. It seems to generate its own light from within, the result of mixed media with some underlying metallic acrylic washes.
"Laying in the grass and watching the sky" is a bridge between the natural world and viewer, a kind of human scale doorway. It is totally serene, but also alive and passionate. It resonates with its own light. And life.
At the time of this writing "Laying in the grass and watching the sky" is available for collection in my Italy studio.
