This painting. Oh that wax paper bag is so beautiful, and the pentimenti of the pencil, and the way the red bleeds in the blood orange. I might need to lie down for a moment. This is so beautiful.
I think i’m gaining a new appreciation for these pieces that use such simple shapes and clean, clear color to define objects. I will be looking up more of this nice lady’s work this evening. I just know it.

From Stricoff Fine Art Gallery:
“Kevin Kearns’ abstract landscapes are inspired by the North American landscape. …. His dramatic landscapes are full of abstract shape and color, loosely representing clouds, trees, rivers and open grass land.
In some respects painted like old masters’ works, his paintings show, on closer inspection, organic and abstract qualities. ….
Glazing combined with intricate palette knife work and brush strokes creates sumptuous and complex surfaces. The final application of clear resin seals the paint, in an effect similar to water on a river rock.”
