#76 Rise Above… Pam, Waterloo, Ontario

I am always impressed by Jeff’s ability to incorporate such vibrant colour into his paintings; it’s not easy to do and he balances the vibrancy in his landscapes and bird paintings. The subtle backgrounds of neutral colours and less bold strokes of the brush highlights the subject of the painting in greater detail. In this painting, the white grasses make the wings of the bird even brighter so that your eyes seek out the bird as it rises from the marsh grasses into flight. This painting is hung in a small room at the lake and it feels as if it was painted just off the dock. I am always thrilled at the variety of birds up North and this painting reminds me that every landscape has it’s own mystery.
