Part of a 48″ x 144″ quadriptych
I wanted to create a large horizontal quadriptych, or four piece painting, that would flow from one season to the next to show the beauty of the forest throughout the year. Working on such a large scale invites you to step right into the scene and take a walk through the woods, enjoying all of the peace and joy that nature has to offer.
This first painting of spring is filled with color and energetic strokes suggesting the excitement as winter ends and nature starts to bud out. Spring wildflowers dance along the ground while flowering trees start to show their colors through the tangle of winter branches. Soft pinks, yellows, greens and whites vibrate with the warmth that is starting to fill the air.
