ice bound suite 5 / by Philip Tarlow

3:31 PM: today one more ice bound suite series painting emerged: ice bound suite 5. unlike what happened yesterday, when 4 of these paintings emerged, today was spent on just this one 16x20” painting in oil on linen. it covers a painting made on february 18: frozen creek. the tan ground it’s painted on is somewhat darker than it’s 4 siblings. however the nature of the abstracted rocks & the single red branch are all in the same spirit and can coexist easily, as you can see below.
