Red Field


10x8 oil on panel, framed in gold
Ask Russell Collection Fine Art about this painting.

This was like therapy for me today. We've had the flu in the house and while I have been lucky (knock on wood) to not get it, I
have been nursing and cleaning a lot. So while my two invalids were resting today I managed to paint this. I approached it a little differently than normal, painted more slowly and really got absorbed in it. It felt very good.
The woman here is filling her field of vision with Barnett Newman's "Vir Heroicus Sublimis" (Man, heroic and sublime.)

Very powerful! I thought of Fever, portrayed as all the red in your painting, when I read of the flu at your house. Hope that everyone recovers quickly and that you don't get it!

Thanks Cecelia!
I wish I was creative with titles. That is a good idea.... Fever.
Ken Auster has the best titles I think.
