Redlin Art Center Unveils “Early Morning Frost”
Renowned wildlife and American artist Terry Redlin left a tremendous legacy of beautiful art for generations to enjoy. In commemoration of his life and his lasting legacy, the Redlin Art Center is pleased to share “Early Morning Frost”, one of many unfinished paintings Redlin was working on before illness resulted in his early retirement.
This painting gives collectors a rare glimpse of Terry Redlin’s work while in process. Because of the desire from his collectors to see, enjoy and collect everything Terry Redlin created, the Redlin Art Center is pleased to offer this unique opportunity to experience a piece of art the artist was still working on.
In this image, we are mesmerized by the frost coated landscape illuminated by the yard light and the bright white glow of the rising sun on the horizon - its power will soon burn off the icy crystals that have settled overnight on every tree branch and blade of grass. We ponder what Terry would have added to this farmyard next. Would there have been waterfowl or maybe deer in the harvested cornfield? We see what looks like the back end of a boat with an outboard motor in the shed. Was this a sign that the farmer had fishing in mind? We marvel at the reflection of the light and the farmyard in the water and know that the artist was just getting warmed up when he put down his brush the last time he touched “Early Morning Frost”.
The Redlin Art Center invites you to lose yourself in the art of Terry Redlin and this special piece, one of Terry’s last gifts to collectors. A commemorative print is available as an unsigned limited edition of 2020; or as a smaller unsigned open edition in the Redlin Gift Shop beginning August 1, 2020.
The original oil painting, “Early Morning Frost”, will be on temporary display within the Redlin Art Center beginning Saturday, August 1, 2020 as a tribute to an artist – and a man – admired and loved by so many. It will be on display through August 31, 2020.
Admission to the Redlin Art Center is free.
