GORGES I

Oil and Wax, 12 x 16 inches

This oil and wax painting is part of a series that conveys an impression of the spaces where water finds its way between steep, dominant and ominous rock formations. Though these are relatively small works, there is an intricate blending of colour and a heavy reliance on texture and detail throughout to effectively portray the majesty of the scene.

  • “Painting, art in general, enchants me. It is my life. What else matters? When you put all your soul into a work, all that is noble in you, you cannot fail to find a kindred soul who understands you, and you do not need a host of such spirits. Is that not all an artist should wish for?” – Camille Pissarro (1831-1903)
