Poppin’ Through – Cherie Giddens
Framed 32 x 39
Framed 28 x 33
“On a cold winter day at sunset on the Colorado river, a large blue heron appears. These birds are year round residents along bodies of water in Texas. I used the almost dry, river bed as a backdrop for the painting and included the seasons of color and of sepia tones to represent the transcendent presence of the heron’s lookout.”
Quiet Winter Shadows
Framed 32 x 40
Nothing seems to reflect light and shadow better than snow. While painting this winter scene I played with the glow of sunlight that creates color in the white of the tree trunks and the snow revealing the reds, yellows and blues everywhere.
In Memory of Summer
Framed 24 x 36″
The fun and discovery of summer adventures create special memories, sometimes not literal but always with focus on the experienced moment.
This painting was taken from one of Henry’s photos from his summer travels.
