Oil and Gesso on Canvas
Sunsets in the Camp House Pasture is a vibrant and exciting oil and gesso on canvas. With its bright blues, long fuchsia brush strokes, and cool greens, this painting represents what the lands of West Texas are and mean to me. A tough texture resonates from the background instilling the piece with movement and dimension. Because of the tactical quality, the colorful foreground and stark white background compliment one another as both are infused with eccentric brushwork.
I have always been entranced by the whimsical colors of West Texas, especially those at sunset. The Camp House pasture is a place at my family's ranch I would find myself taking long drives through, admiring the vistas and wildlife. I always found the yuccas to be strange and futuristic looking. There is something otherworldly about them. At sunset they would transform from their sun exhausted ocher selves to an illuminating kaleidoscope of colors. This painting is a compilation of my love for the outdoors, plein air painting and my colorist inclination to create vibrant, eye-catching contemporary pieces.
