The Color of Home, Original Oil Painting, Glowing Autumn Foliage on Country Road

2019

About

Poplar trees, in a blaze of autumn color, line a country road in Northern Michigan - the artist's home. The wind rustles thru the tiny yellow leaves as the sun casts its long shadows across the field. The tree line brings the viewer's eye into the distance where a quaint farm house is bathed in afternoon light. Ebbers spends much of her time wondering these country roads, often bringing her canvas and brushes along, to capture these serene moments. Deborah Ebbers The Color of Home oil on canvas 20h x 48w in 50.80h x 121.92w cm DE0012 Deborah Ebbers Artist Statement My body of work is quiet and reflective by nature. At first glance there is an energy of peacefulness, however underneath this stillness there is more going on. I create a sense of mystery through the composition and playing with the aesthetic power of light moving through the landscape. To borrow an analogy from music it’s the spaces between the notes which shape the piece. In my work I use the negative, dark spaces, what’s not too apparent, to bring mystery and drama to the illumination. This is where the use of color becomes a critical aspect to the work. I use multiple layers of translucent color to create a dynamic surface, whether it’s the shadow or illuminated aspects of the piece, there is a depth created through the use of this technique. In many ways it would be simpler to mix all of the colors at once, but through the use of translucent colors layered over each other, (sometimes up to 7 or 8 layers of paint) the work becomes vivid and energetic. It is this dialogue that I set out to achieve when someone views my work.
