Not your traditional landscape

Baby blues tie this intensely colorful piece together by Damon Soule...Blue is also used to visually describe the boxy, geometric forms with stand in direct opposition to a mainly organic painting...acting as both the antagonist and glue for the overall piece it creates a vibration...

The central image, owl form, is nicely placed off to the side adding to the level of interest, forcing the viewer to reconcile and continue to move around the picture plane...the organic branches of color move us to the front and to the back of the space...obliterated colors fade off into the distance like an extended landscape, tightening up and becoming clear as the forms come into focus.
