"Nineteen Trees in Blue-Green Forest"
by sabine7 / July 20, 2006


Benjamin Butler’s oils seem simple at first glance, but when one realizes that one remains transfixed, the simplicity becomes deceptive. The greens, blues and browns of Nineteen Trees, and their textures, work so deliciously and effectively together that it looks almost too easy. Again, that is one’s first impression about Tree at Sunset, but the composition combines with just the right amount of abstraction to lead to success. As for Winter Mountain, there is something almost creamy, or marshmallowy, that it almost appears warm in some strange way.
