|“RISE OF THE MORN”|
24 x 36”
A fine work depicting America’s farmlands in
the early mornings as the late summer sun is beginning to cast her light
in full strength. Though this is considered an impressionistic work, great
attention has been paid to the two large bales in the foreground and one
can feel the volume and the incredible weight of these icons of the American
farmer’s way of life. This is a warm work, with the dominant color
of burnt umber framing the bales. Red tones gleam throughout the browns,
offset nicely by the bright blue summer sky and the climbing morning clouds.
Far in the distance, near the blue-pink ridge, are hints of the farmer’s
home and outbuildings.
