Charles Keiger, North Star, 2016
oil on panel, 18" x 17" , 24" x 23" framed
North Star is an evocative small painting dominated by greens and yellows of a girl in wide eyed wonder holding her cat. Partially submerged in water, we don't know whether she is suffering the effects of global warming or simply rising out of the water. The spiritual crystal formation leads us to suspect it is the later.
In this magnificent painting with its graceful arched composition, Charles reflects the sky in the water and he gives us great feeling for animals and nature. By making the whale iconic but equally as a holder for an idyllic sea scene, we are inspired to think about what we are doing to the planet.
