Red Mountain, Snowy Sky

Diptychs are such nice forms.
This duo has a subtle and playful mixture of texture and color.
There's warmth and richness of the colors and a delicate balance of textures.
Although the work is small, it gives a monumental landscape feel.

To see more of my small duo paintings
in the series Red Mountain,
please visit my diptych gallery.



'The Snowman, Walking in the Air',
by George Winston.

Art continues on the sides.
(Top, bottom and middle sides are painted in matte black.)
Doesn't need a frame.

Mixed media used:
caparol binder (resin binder glue), soft wood shavings (excelsior), crushed egg shells, silk, cheese cloth.
All worked in with different mediums (Liquitex, Golden only) to conserve the pieces.

Diptychs are such nice forms (as you might have guessed from my work.) There is a subtle mixture of texture and color. Although the work is small, it gives a monumental landscape feel.

Finely composed the colors..!!

Who can keep up with you? An artist in every way;what with beautiful daughters and their off-spring+handsome husband and all those beautiful works of art? are you sure there is no van Goff in your background. Holland is a small country after all.

Artist Reply: I do realize I'm blessed Frank!! So much happening in our lives momentarily. By the way: we don't have a van Gogh in our family line!
