Moonriver was completed in early February of 2021 in the midst of the world pandemic that affects us all.
It represents the isolation and loneliness experienced by many during this worldwide disaster. The image evokes the style of artists of the Impressionist movement of the XIXth century. Random daubs of thick paint form a vague landscape, a nightscape.
A single boat with its one passenger is reflected on a surface that implies a large body of water. Looking to the West, one can infer looking to better times.
The colors in this work are muted, namely blues, whites and oranges. One senses a certain calm as the vaguely implied source of light descends on its singular discernable object, a man and his boat.
Acrylic paints applied to a hard surface, a masonite board with brushes and palette knives. Unframed the work measures 24x36 inches.
Frame not included.
