Dream in Green

Peter Steeves's avatar Peter Steeves

I have been experimenting with the use of a form of pointillism to achieve movement and depth within my paintings. I have several examples of finished work attached but I plan to create two new pieces for ArtPrize 2011. The first is complete submitted as "Last Stand" and the second is in progress. They will employ the same techniques but will be based off of photographs I took during a trip to Costa Rica in 2008 and 2009. The range of green colors the rainforests provide is unparalleled. I hope to do justice to the beauty of that rich world before it succumbs to the ravages of development. "Last Stand" features a single surviving rain forest tree in front of the replanted hills near Arenal Volcano. The works are 24"x 36" and 48”x 36” acrylic on canvas, with standard hanging requirements.
