I was trying to capture the still and golden mood of that summer afternoon in this work. The young man leans toward the child protectively. The figures are lost in this halcyon scene, unaware of the eagles that circle above, harbingers of their destiny.
The Mercurial Hour by Annemarie Stanley
Annemarie Stanley’s paintings are worked loosely, with areas of evident brushstroke and luminous colour while other parts are left barely touched. Every painting session explores the fall and depiction of light on form. Annemarie works quickly but will often work on a piece for a long time until she feels that there is a resolution within the painting.
