'FROM THE GROUND, UP'
An Exhibition of 40 New Oil Paintings by Robert Weiss
VOLCANO ART CENTER GALLERY,
HAWAII VOLCANOES NATIONAL PARK
October 10th - November 15th, 2015
Eruption 24" x 24" oil on canvas $2,895
The idea for this painting came from the three plein air paintings of the vent eruption earlier this year, Eruption Sketch I, II, and III. Instead of simply enlarging one of them I felt that focusing on a small section of one would be more dramatic. The main idea for the composition came from a 1 ½” square segment of Eruption Sketch I, with the smoke and other elements coming from the others, and from memory. The goal was to stay as abstract and loose as possible while conveying the energy and atmosphere one might feel being up close to the volcanic action.
