6x8 inch original oil painting
By Tom Brown
This painting is a study in contrasts. Contrasts in strength and durability, in textures, in light and shadow, in size and weight of objects. Surface materials. And more.
The frailty of the baby sprout contrasts with the dead weight of a heavy steel wrench. The shaft of light contrasts with a soft shadow falling across the wrench. Unyielding concrete gives way to a delicate plant.
Somewhere in all this is a metaphor for life, I suppose. Things to meditate upon. Or maybe just some fun stuff to paint. Whatever.
As always, let me know if this delights you too. Or if you want it. email@example.com
