I'm always fascinated by shadows; the absence of light. They make the light around them explode in color, which as an artist gets my creative juices flowing. This is a scene captured in the mountains of Virginia. People often ask "is this impressionism"? I don't label it. For me, it is merely how I translate the scene. It can be impressionism to some, expressionism to others. This painting is on a gallery wrapped canvas with finished black edges. It comes varnished and ready to hang.
