VanKlei, Daniel, Aspen Grove, Mixed Media on birch panel, 12x12"
The painting was received last week. It is without any doubt a priceless gem of a painting. The viewer is constantly tempted to touch and to their surprise they are met with wonderful texture throughout. (I now see the benefit of the plastic that surrounds the painting). One moment you notice movement in the bush beyond the grove and next your eyes meet up with aspen trees dancing (up and down) in harmony.
In the foreground is a remarkable dancing floor filled with an accumulation of brush and other messages from the forest.
