A Dip into Minimalism

I don’t delve into minimalism a whole lot and I don’t really know why. I think part of it is because I feel like a block of solid color is really just unused canvas, so I always have this need to scrape or throw paint where there’s nothing really going on. To fill the space. This piece was an exercise in restraint and I enjoyed making it more than I thought I would.

Simple Yet Elegant

To be honest – I like the piece a lot more than I thought I would. Sure, at heart it’s basic – but that’s not bad. Especially considering that most of my pieces are very aggressive or have a lot of movement. When I look at Wondrous Winter, I don’t get a sense of movement; I get a sense of calmness; of peace.

I chose the colors based on other pieces I had seen on the internet with similar colors. The stark white stands out even against bare walls. The royal+midnight blue has a such a fullness to it, that it almost draws you in. And the gold is a great barrier between the two, breaking them up, while also giving you a little bit of eye candy.

Why Winter?

When my wife first looked at the piece (before it was finished) she saw the uneven brush strokes of blue on white and told me it reminded her of a wintery forest. That name was as good as any, but after adding the gold, those brushstrokes were gone, meaning the “foresty” look had vanished as well.

But it still felt like winter to me – the white of snow, the blue of early nights, and the gold of decorations for the holidays. So the winter aspect of the name and feel remained.

Truly, this piece is unlike any other I have done, and it fills me with pride to have done it.

But what do you think?
