“Rural Refuge"

I find myself longing to go to my place of refuge again and again as we live through these difficult days.

Here I find peace and comfort as I close my eyes and listen to the gentle rapids and the wind rustling through the dogwoods. I feel the sun's warmth on my face. I know that God has made a beautiful world for us and that someday life will return to normal.

Compositional attributes:

This painting was designed with a high key,warm colour dominance. The viewer feels the warmth of the sun in every area. The value contrasts are sharp and intentional. The viewer feels invigorated and excited as the eye travels slowing throughout the composition taking in all aspects of the scene. The red dogwoods shine in all their glory, overlapping the creek, claiming dominance over the scene.There are little deviations where the eye can travel into little nooks and crannies, leaving you to imagine what lies beyond the treed background or where the creek will lead you.
