“Blazing Sunset” (2004)
by Jeffrey Catherine Jones (1944-2011)
18 x 24 in., oil on canvas
Jones was a great, great science fiction and fantasy artist, but it is her landscapes and scenery paintings that really catch me up. The strong and heavy impressionistic brushstrokes here give a compelling and animated dynamic to the composition that you just do not get with a more serene use of the medium.
