ROUGE VALLEY II
Mixed Media, 15 x 19 inches
This work was inspired by a morning walk in Rouge National Urban Park (Ontario). I wanted to capture the wind in the grasses and the light coming through the trees behind me.
“When I was young, I believed…that painting was a sort of reaction which reconstructed the spectacle before our eyes, preserving our memory of it, or that it allowed us to reconstruct or imagine some scene which illustrated an idea. Now I think that painting is rather in the domain of philosophy.” – Jacques Villon (1875-1963)
