|The Art of George Buchanan||
Welcome to my insights and inspirations.
The tree is the drawing for my business logo.
I constructed the tree using many of my favorite things; crows, trains, reptiles and women.
See how many you can find!
My house is a few miles outside of the city, where the open farmland and Falls Lake begins. So I see lots of wildlife and my favorite are the owls. We've had many foggy, rainy nights recently and I like the way that fog effects the lights and sounds. I can see the glow of Durham against the clouds and hear a muted rumble of traffic and trains, but these are in the background. A few rainy nights ago, I heard an owl calling, almost in response to a distant train whistle. I wish I could have recorded the amazing combination of sounds, but I saw the owl in the tree beside my driveway, lit by my neighbors houselights. I painted this small oil (11 x 14") but I wish I could include the audio! Sound is more and more often my motivation for painting.
