It's Getting Closer

This one is 99% finished. While traveling a remote trail in the mountains near the tundra I discovered these fallen aspens and felt the fallen trees were symbolic of something I wanted to express. 35 years later it is now a painting. Working Title: "It's Getting Closer", Oil on Wood Panel, 24x30 inches (61x76 cm), from the Decline of an Empire Series.

Re: It's Getting Closer

Your paintings are something to be awed! This one is no exception. Composition, the atmosphere, the symbolism and of course technical mastery are all beautiful.

May I ask how long, approximately, you need to work on a painting? I am a newbie and not sure if I am putting enough time to each painting, and if I need to be more patient.

Does the "Empire" of this series imply any particular empire? I am a history fan also.

Thanks for posting
