The Usual Stops - Art
The Usual Stops uses color and technique to create an image that is both pleasing to the eye and inspiring to the imagination. The green streaks of color, which depict tranquility and harmony, have a calming effect. The delicate strokes used to paint these streaks of color give them a light and airy feel. The “stops” in the painting are the purplish circles scattered at points across the predominantly green image. These points represent isolated experiences, moments of clarity and imagination that occur in a tranquil and harmonious existence.
The color scheme of this piece is muted, except for one vibrant circle of pink. The other colors in this piece seem dimmer by comparison, and the brightness of the pink draws the viewer’s eye immediately. With The Usual Stops, the artist has created an attractive and interesting color study that has the potential to spark the imagination.
