This is a painting completed in 2013 by Tom McKinley entitled "Crow in Samona". It is a contemporary painting completed using oil on panel. I chose this painting because I thought it was very interesting how it had a video-game like quality to it because it is very graphic and clean. I also like his use of light whether it be the pink sunset under the dark blue sky or the pops of light coming from the grass and the house. This painting makes me feel a sense of peace and quiet and looks like a wonderful place to be.
