"On The Banks At Horseshoe Bend" attracted me as a subject initially because of the contrast between the brooding, dark "natural" colors of the environment and the exquisite, bright and "artificial" color of the human contrivance that has been left behind. I love the tension between the underlying, subliminal and resonant undertones and the vivid surface colors. For me, the contrasts in this painting suggest something about the relationship of the persistent flow of life and the interruption of adventure - about rest, abandonment and stepping out of the river of time.
