The Harbinger


© 2013 Debi Coleman

I couldn’t resist this title.  A harbinger is a person or thing that announces or signals the approach of another.  The coming storm is signaled by the bird (the harbinger in this piece) seeking shelter among the caves.  This is a more modern piece done in a “painterly” style where the image is suggested as opposed to tightly rendered.  It is a diptych with each of the canvases being 10×20.  You can get a really varied look based on how far apart you hang the canvases.  The thumbnail looks a little dark, the color shows more true if you click on it.  I love the piece, and had so much fun painting it. I hope you enjoy it.

“Red” is a diptych (two canvases that combine to make one image).  It’s done on gallery wrap canvas which means the sides are painted as part of the image, so it doesn’t require a frame.  It’s very modern and the red is very strong.  I’m not sure if it shows as strong on the computer, the camera seemed to really struggle to capture the color.      It’s inspired by my love of macro photography and is definitely different from what I normally do.   Let me know what you think.
