Oil on Board

A white-blue winter road draws the viewer into a picture plane of stacked houses in bright yellow, green and purple-red leading to a hillside dotted in trees in this oil on canvas. The strong outline of the houses and robust, linear direction of the vegetation reflects the artist's background as a commercial illustrator. This oil on board was a sketch for a larger canvas that is available "Untitled (Winter Town)" in which the artist added two figures.
