About Song for the Lark

Dynamic washes of rust-brown and violet are interrupted by a passage of bright turquoise in this lyrical canvas by Milly Ristvedt. Fine almost delicate lines in green, orange and yellow dance playfully across the composition. The title of the work may be a response and gift back to the meadowlark, a songbird with elongated claws, brown camouflaging plumage that sings while in flight.
