Lines & Color

I love the bright colors and imagery in these paintings by Erik Railton.

Railton says, "Painting for me brings back good memories. My painting reflects different times of my life and the memories associated with them. Growing up in the northwest I found myself spending time outside in nature . The thought of those times defines my life and I find myself comforted when I reflect on them." His insight is wonderful and I can see how nature has influenced his stunning work.

On a side note, another busy, busy day. I hope to catch up with all of you soon. Going for my second cup of chai tea and resisting the urge to frantically run or quit!

I adore this work! And living in the PNW, I can relate. Nature inspires art without us looking for it. Thanks!

reminds me of the late works of matisse and his paper cuttings. i love bold larges shapes like that...sometimes it doesn't have to be complicated. :)

the best choice for decorative painting.
Abstract decoration was also cold at the abstract and abstract heat.

I really like the colors on these 3 paintings! It almost seems they are telling a story themselves.
