Field / by Lucas Novak

While the subject matter is rather simple, this painting took a long time to complete, and the process was somewhat representative of the storms we face in our own minds. Sometimes we encounter chaos in the commonality. 

I used some pearlescent paints in the blues and purples, and the colors therefore shift depending on where you stand, the angle upon which you view it. The effect can't be duplicated in the small unmoving image on a computer screen. The actual painting is six feet wide.
