Notes: Abstract expressionism revisited, this uplifting painting is alive with vigorous, fluid brushstrokes in a field of the palest cream and frothy ice whites. A gestural, energetic surface, filled with motion and energy. Deep forest greens and woodsy tones brush up against clear sky blues and the music of ripples, creek water and wet leaves.
