Overview

Gold Progressions oil on canvas, 48 x 48 inches in a 23 karat gold frame.

Goals

Gold Progressions oil on canvas, 48 x 48 inches
Now exhibiting at the Madden Museum of Art, Denver
This oil is a variation on my Blue Progression images. For this oil I reversed the image and worked in a much warmer palette. Adding greys to the colors behind the trees created a shimmering effect in the yellows and blues that doesn't fully show here.
I liked turning the yellows loose in the field but I was careful not use the same yellows for the skies. Each yellow area has it's own character and the yellows don't subtract power from each other.

Process

This “to EXPAND” exhibition highlights the range of work presented by respective artists resounding to the unique space offered at the Museum.
