Landscape scene of grassy hills and dunes.
Historical Context:
"My oil pastels are depictions of the beauty that surrounds me. A majority are inspired by scenes in West Michigan. I love color. It helps me to express my understanding of the world in which I live. I look at reflections, shadows and contrasts created by light. I'm interested in shapes, and patterns and using these elements to create a strong composition. My message is simple. It doesn't take the Grand Canyon or the Rockies to demonstrate beauty. It can be found in a quiet stream, a local field, or a simple cottage." - Carol Cousineau
