James Woodside (Canadian, b. 1957): Logs, (Scotts Bay, Nova Scotia), 2003. Oil on wood panel, signed lower left and verso with title and date, framed.

From the Artist's website: "Working outdoors forces me to have a direct and immediate relationship with the subject matter I'm painting. Working quickly, I try to simplify impossibly complex forms into simple dramatic shapes. I try to distill down what I'm looking at into something I can understand and manage. I consider this immediacy to be crucial to the success and strength of my work. The limitations of time, weather, and transportation of materials all become part of the "genetic makeup" of the painting itself and provide a set of natural parameters. For me, this helps the work maintain a fresh in-the-moment credibility, and a sense of real authenticity."

13.5 x 13.5 inches framed; 8 x 8 inches panel.

Acquired from the artist, private collection, New England, USA.
