After the rain

This painting has been sold

Oil on hardboard 12" x 9"

This is another total rework of a painting I did about 6 months ago. I kept the basic shapes but reworked the whole surface. I was quite amused to conclude that it now looks a bit like a Clarice Cliff teapot (that wasn't the intention) but maybe there are some Clarice Cliff collectors out there :)

Hi Sheila, thank you for visiting my blog and the comment you left. I put you in the sidebar for so my regular visitors may find your work.

I really enjoy the strong design in this painting. The diagonal water feature in the downward facing crescent shape (looks like a "pac-man") and the dark area in the bottom right has a similar diagonal shape, like a pathway. It comes across as a metaphor for two worlds, one of light eating the one of darkness. Kind of like helping stamp evil from the world.

Well for all that I have read into the piece, it is marvelous for the landscape that it is. And interesting further for what it reminds me of. Very nice.
