Comments About This Piece
I see a rutted country lane that dips and rises for miles. Rain has washed the land and pools of water line the roadside. Overhead the sky threatens. In the distance I can see more rain coming. No one in sight as a poet’s words come to mind, “Two roads diverged in a yellow wood, and sorry I could not travel both, and be one traveler. Long I stood, and looked down one as far as I could, to where it bent in the undergrowth.” (The Road Not Taken by Robert Frost)
This piece is on a gallery wrapped canvas and the painting continues around the sides. The painting measures 24"H x 36"W x .75"D. It is custom framed in a shadow box presentation bringing the total dimensions to 32"H x 44"L x 1.5"D.The canvas is attached to a linen covered backing. Linen spacers and an aged, cherry finished wood molding complete the look. The linen gives light and space to the painting. The work comes varnished and ready to hang.
Oil paint uses natural oils, such as linseed, poppy and walnut oil to bind the pigments. Oils are slow to dry, which allows the artist to rework the painting to achieve the desired effect. Also, they blend easily, which helps to achieve certain colors. With the rise of naturalism in 15th century Early Netherlandish painting, oil paints became preferred to quick drying tempera paint. Artists wanted a medium that would allow them to achieve detailed and precise effects in their paintings. Consider all of the detail in the masterpieces of Jan van Eyck and Hieronymus Bosch!
Canvas is a heavy-duty fabric used as a painting surface. When a canvas artwork is labeled stretched, it means the canvas has been wrapped around a wooden frame (the ''stretcher''). Stretched canvases typically do not require framing.
