Narrative: WARM TRANSITIONS – Supremely woodsy feeling with its earth tone palette, WARM TRANSITIONS travels effortlessly through scale, flow, figure, subject and background. It’s center channel is an overhead view of a river that flows through the piece, drawing off the owner’s interest in cartography. Bringing in elements from the nearby Lockwood Gorge with watery runoff splashing at the sides of the curvilinear panels, birds and insects appear, sitting atop logs in a stream, while it’s wooden limbs beneath jut up like trees hovering high above a forest floor.
From the Owner: “WARM TRANSITIONS is awesome. I had great anticipation prior to the ‘big reveal’ and I love it. I was looking for a centerpiece of focus for my great room and this more than delivered. It looks fantastic in my home and brings color and beauty to the room every day.”
