Weldon Ball uses wild, fauve colors in his paintings, which work to capture an emotional response to the scene. Many of his pieces blur the line between representation and abstraction, with hints of a horizon line enveloped in a frenzy of brushwork and color. When he has a quiet, still moment to himself, Weldon will close his eyes to realize these scenes, allowing them to take form in his mind. Although they are inspired by the Tennessee landscape and many visits to Europe, the paintings are largely a product of his imagination. While the colors are vivid and warm, there is a strong sense of solitude in the work. These are quiet moments between the artist and his subject. Weldon seeks to create paintings that will make the viewer pause and appreciate the scene, its color, sense of depth, and inner source of light.
