About Forest at Night

Darkness prevails in this moody acrylic painting by Toronto contemporary artist Lynne Fernie. Thick dashes of black, gray, white and red suggest movement and add texture. The forest does not sleep at night.
“Painting is a visual language in the same sense as when a poet sits down to write and they have some sort of feeling. They know there’s something to be said.” Lynne Fernie
