A Silent Night

About This Piece

As the name suggests, this particular reflects a chill night through an old window. I painted this in a minimalist style and added the clinging dewdrops from branches for interest and scale. The lovely Greens with hints Yellow and Red. This painting shows a very misty night, with the moon just overhead! Notice the denser mist as distance approaches; also notice those old rusting hinges and bolts.

Artist Statement

The images transferred on to the canvas here are replete with nature that substitutes the external one translating feeling and emotions. I strongly believe art should energize and revitalize you along with giving you peace and pleasure. The creations are about the inner journey, one that portrays about a personal response to the landscape. Exploration, observation and careful thoughts are the key to success. Ideally there should be some interaction between size of the objects and horizon. Good composition is to judge what to leave out as it is and where to lay the detailing. I always carried very specific eye for detail where ever I lived or worked. My creations share a love of realism and rustic pattern, mix of colors like blue, orange and grey that continues to be part of me. I have a long relation with nature, probably since my childhood. I ask you, “where is the realism of yesterday?” One should not forget the way our forefathers use to tap it on their canvas. Do you know the life they lived, the man made structures slowly creeping into the earth, smoke from the chimney of the mill floating up at an angle? John Cage very well said, “We need not destroy the past. It has gone.”...............................
