Far Shore captures the west coast mist as it tumbles over tree-covered Galiano Island jutting from the sea in Active Pass.
Deep green winter reflections wrestle with rolling fog dressing and undressing the forest. Glimpses of naked trees are quickly covered only to appear again further on. Never quite able to grasp the wholeness and the detail at the same time, the viewer’s eye dances across the canvas.
A slice of the painting resting at easel-angle shows a sliver of the deep green unframed canvas sides.
This detail holds the movement and mystery of the larger painting.
Creative Potager post “more painting” shows a couple of images of Far Shore in progress.
Far Shore is the third of three original oil paintings on sale over three days. After each of the three paintings become available they will remain on sale until sold or midnight PST Monday December 6, 2010, whichever comes first.
The first painting East Point Cliffs is still available at the time of this posting.
The second painting Owl’s View is still available at the time of this posting.
