Family Rails - Art


Family Rails is an airy, colorful piece with hazy multi-colored stripes that stretch across the painting. The colors in this piece range from green to pink to yellow, all of them muted and neutral in tone. The colors combine to create a pleasing arrangement of complementary colors, the beauty of these shades enhanced by the juxtaposition of cool and warm colors.

These colors become stronger and more effective by their careful positioning next to each other. Each color serves as a foil for the other one, strengthening the impression that each color has on the viewer. This natural improvement by being part of a group or a collective arrangement reflects the way that a family strengthens and improves its members. Strength can be found in numbers, and the sum of the whole of a family is greater than the strength of its individual members.
