Soft Light - Simple Air - Perfect Life
Gouache on paper - $300
by Royce Deans

The title of this painting really just about says it all. It reminds me that I need to be still more often and just feel what is right in front of me. As an artist, that is really my job to observe as much as is humanly possible and then just a little bit more.

I love the colors and the contours the landscape here and the indications of human interaction with it, namely, tiny roads, fence posts, power poles and fields kept cut short by livestock.
