Oil by Leigh Slayden
(18 in. x 15 in.)
"No longer simply depicting a scene, this painting begs to tell a story…Expressive color bathes our path in the summer sun’s heat, tempting us to the pleasant bench in cool blue shade. But somehow the gnarled tree roots morph into malicious intent…is this a trap? What hides in the dark holes of the hedge? With this scene, my typically impressionist style moves into expressionism and takes the true-life scene into a world of fantasy."
