About The Painting

Three Statues. 24" by 30" Acrylic on canvas.

C 2007. The setting of this painting is an arid location in perhaps a desert. Three dead tree trunks stand in the sand with a red clay bank behind them in the distance.

This is an example of positive space. The tree trunks look almost human in shape and I have detailed the human forms emerging from the trunks.
