On the Prairie Looking West


Looking West, Karen F Rose,
8x8",oil on canvas
© 2009
One of three paintings to be displayed at the
upcoming exhibit Small Works, Big Ideas,Thinking
Inside the Box at the Melrose Bay Gallery,
in Melrose, Fl.
For this show each artist is given a display
"box" space-18" x 42" and a requirement that no
painting plus frame is larger than 12x12".
So you get it right? We have to think "inside"
the box.
Like Atlantic Nocturne, (posted on Oct. 20.),
this painting has a softening of
focus and hint of form leaving room
for the viewer to look and linger within
the the frame at it's quiet veil of color yet
connect with their own memory.
My hope is to take you outside the box.
Have I succeeded?
