"Wired in Winter"
9x12 oil on panel
Painted on 1-19-09 as the sun was setting. There was a lot of smog and I probably should have painted in doors. I enjoy the light as the sun sets. There is a play of warm and cool color in the sky. The painting moves the viewers eye into the painting using the lines of the snow entering from the left and moving to the right and then the telephone poles move the viewers eye into the painting and to the left. There is the contrast of the vertical lines of the poles and the horizontal lines of the grass.
