the weight of its air, the behavior of its light, 36x48" oil on canvas, framed
From Sharon's 'A beautiful melancholy' series this is a 36x48" oil on canvas original painting framed in a clear maple with black interior floater frame. Inspired by these words, "For a homebody surrounded by the familiar or a traveler exploring the strange, there can be no better guide to a place than the weight of its air, the behavior of its light, the shape of its water, the textures of rock and feather, leaf and fur, and the ways that humans bless, mark or obliterate them. Each of us possesses five fundamental, enthralling maps to the natural world: sight, touch, taste, hearing, smell. As we unravel the threads that bind us to nature, as denizens of data and artifice, amid crowds and clutter, we become miserly with these loyal and exquisite guides, we numb our sensory intelligence. This failure of attention will make orphans of us all. " Ellen Meloy. Can be shipped to any US location. No refunds or returns on original art.
