Sunshine. 24″ x 30″, Oil on Wood, © 2018 Cedar Lee
This painting evokes a feeling of pleasant warmth and joy. It brings with it a fantasy of childhood freedom, the carefree feeling of tromping through the woods, surrounded by birdsong.
The space around the massive trees is filled with yellow sunlight.
Summer grasses fill the foreground, framing the bright opening between the two center trees. In the distance beyond, washed out by the sun, there are hints of more foliage.
At the periphery, the tree trunks are painted in deep shadows of crimson and inky purple.
There are abstract, painterly elements throughout the image–from a distance, it is the forest, but upon closer inspection, you can see rough smears of color that were applied with a palette knife.
The painting is on sturdy, heavy wood.
The painting continues around the deep edges for a bold, three-dimensional effect.
