Pax Rusticana, -2010
Oil Paint
30 x 30 in

A stunningly rendered rendering of dawn in the countryside, with the sky as hero and subject. It is exceedingly difficult to capture the subtle tones of a morning sky such as this accurately, but the artist has done it with aplomb. It "feels" quiet and peaceful (I believe "Pax Rusticana" means "Rustic Peace'). There is no way you could walk by this painting every day without it giving you a dose of serenity.
