Minimal in its approach, this painting suggests a landscape or cloudscape with soft washes of color and sparse gesture. The wood grain integrates with the paint making the world of this piece lush and luminous. It has a palette of cream, mauve and foggy blue. Watercolor and gouache on a raw birch wood panel with a raw bass wood cradle.
