This piece and several in my Storm series are inspired by a superstorm that blew into Park City, Utah on February 18th, 2016. The temperature dropped twenty degrees in five minutes when the violent storm overtook the town. The dramatic sky changed from moment to moment. In this contemporary oil painting, Silver Road, the mountains and road are in relief so the lower portion is the exposed, reflective metal. The dramatic sky is painted completely with oil paints. Some marks are more abstract, some more figurative. Exposing the reflective silver of the panels is integral to the work. Scraping, buffing, and simply leaving the panel as negative space creates energy, movement and light.
