Stuart Shils Toward Seymour Lake 9" x 10" oil on panel
Stuart Shils Big Sky Over Morning Fields 16.25"x16" oil on mounted linen
In continuing the September theme of the skies as a dominant subject, the work of Stuart Shils comes quickly to mind. His paintings capture fleeting but visually perfect moments of atmospheric effect, his harmonizing blend of earth and sky a vision reminiscent of the work of J.M.W. Turner. In short, his work reaches towards a mystical awareness of the unknowable.
