With the uneasiness of an oncoming storm, ROLLING THUNDER never rests and forces excitement and engagement. It takes the viewer for a ride where they contemplate the imbalance of the forms while following the rhythms which reveal concentric animal figures. Stepping back, the landscape reminiscent forms carry the weight of a feeling of post pangea planetary shifts.

Overall Dimensions: Width 46” x Height 24” x Depth 4″

Format: oil painted panels, attached to wooden hanging structure

Oil paint on stretched canvas.

The Stretchers (the canvas panels): Designed, created and built by the artist, this unique ‘Nature’s Secret’ stretcher is hand drawn and carved with a multi-layered, ridged edge for added effect.  The stretchers have a convex back which protrudes from the wall enhancing it’s presence and relationship with the viewer.

The Wooden Hanging Structure: Designed by the artist to augment the narrative, the complementary sculptural element is created from Myrtle wood by Furniture maker Robert Post.  The art and wood structure are set an inch in front of, not against, the wall and have the appearance of floating.

The Paint: ‘Old Holland Classic Oil Colours’ oil paint for the richest, most vibrant color.

The Oil: ‘Chelsea Classical Studio’ Clarified Pale Cold Pressed Walnut Oil. This oil will not darken, and contributes to both the deep richness of tones and hues, as well as the brightness and energy of the highlights in the work. This magnificent oil was mentioned many times as a favored painting medium in the writings of Leonardo DaVinci!

The Canvas: #10 double-filled Army Duck canvas, selected for its smooth, uniform surface and durability.
