More Than a Day’s Journey by Allison Collins
Oil on canvas
Emergency Department Security Desk
Inspired by the contours of the land and the simple sky, this painting was created with the application of successive layers of paint, some adding, some subtracting visual details that are both abstract and literal. The painting that emerges, layer by layer, is a crazy quilt of color and lines, cultivated farmland, hills and valleys, and sunshine and shadows.
