Elwood Howell
"Ocean," Abstract Landscape Painting

2021

$13,000

About

This abstract landscape painting by Elwood Howell features the artist's signature high horizon line in white. Beneath the line is a textured deep blue that is composed of small shapes and layers. Above the horizon is a pale green sky with a white, almost glowing orb, like a sun behind thick clouds. The artist's signature is located at the bottom right-hand corner of the canvas, which has a painted border (giving the aesthetic of a frame - please see corner image for a close-up detail of this). It is wired and ready to hang. "The greater body of my work is primary landscapes and seascapes of an imaginary nature created in the studio," the artist says of his work. "Most works have a generally high horizon as a focal point to lure ones eye into the simple composition. The large area below the horizon down to the base of the canvas gives the viewer's eye freedom to roam the surface. This space gives the painting life much as soil nourishes the very roots of a tree. The imagery at the horizon gives a focal point and the expanse above serves as atmosphere to set the mood. This has been a format I have used for over forty years and it still intrigues me..."
