Backyard Sky Studies #4
2018 | oil on canvas | 10x8 | $4000

For much of her 60-year career, Veda Reed has looked to her native state of Oklahoma as inspiration for her work. She’s focused on open skies—sunrises, sunsets and cloud formations—complemented by vast landscapes. Now she shifts to her own backyard in Midtown Memphis to paint the sky in an urban forest. Reducing her subjects to their essential forms and amplifying their presence through brilliant palettes, Reed layers pigment and glaze to achieve a seamless painting surface. Backyard Sky Studies #4 shows Reed’s experimentation with angled rooftops blanketed by a brilliant evening sky.
