This is a sweet little blue shed in my own yard.
We also have tall laurel hedges and evergreens, cats hanging around on dark cloudy days.
A true northwest scene. I made up the figures.
Thanks for the posting this boingboing !
Here is artist Neil Rodger's artist statement and I wholeheartedly agree:
"I believe that pictures rarely benefit from commentary by the artist. In general I would say that while most good art has been extremely difficult and taxing in the making, it is a prerequisite of great art that this is not evident that it appears effortless or even inevitable."
"Karoo Window II"
He was a great South African artist. His work is extremely soft and gentle.
I just discovered his work today. He died last year.
