Big landscapes

Four paintings by the late, great Elemore Morgan, Jr.
His paintings of the landscapes of Acadiana are somehow soothing and exciting all at once. He painted on-site--the changing light, its shadows, the wind, and its effects on the prairie-fields are evident in his evocative work. I saw his work in the Contemporary Arts Center of Acadiana in Lafayette a couple of years ago....a huge, beautiful white space that held Morgan's giant sweeping landscapes quite well. (really, some of the panoramas are 20'+ in length!)

All images are from the website of the Arthur Roger gallery in New Orleans, Louisiana.
