'My Father's Field'

This piece is 5' high by 6' wide and will be the culmination of many of my techniques. It will include both oil and acrylic and mixed media. A landscape that touches on my childhood memories as well as adult themes of awakening and the dream state.

It's a beautiful piece Robert~I had been trying to discern the lines [or lack of] and before I read your description it was my description...I had started a personal story whose first sentence went like this ~total opposite~I grew up in a sea of airplanes [mostly bombers] and concrete. The hot summer air shimmered off the shiny metal making it all seem like an illusion.~

This piece~shimmers~

I had the same reaction to this piece as I did to Ogallala - instant connection.

I spent the first 12 summers of my life with my grandparents in Saskatchewan. This reminds me of those cherished days...yet it resonates with most of my adult life for different reasons as well.

Keep are amazing.

A wonderfully interesting work that makes me think. Nowadays colour is so widely evident in all aspects of art that it's restful and almost a reminder of the past to look see a monochromatic palette. This work has allowed lowlights and highlights to reveal a more elegant shape and line. A kind of neutral shade makes for a striking result.

Like the ambiguity of the title.
A haunting and poignant piece for me having recently lost my Father. I now live in his house on the farm and walk his wheat fields often...the luminance emanating from this has a preternatural flavor perfectly in sync with your title.
