Original mixed media abstract Landscape oil painting by Stevenjohn McHugh titled "Interlude". Measures 21" x 29" x 1.5. Framed size is 21.75 x 29.75" x 2.5". Mixed media with oil stick, marker, oil, graphite, charcoal and cold wax on Arches oil paper glued on wood panel with PH balance glue. Side of wood cradle (solid wood) is varished natural. Signed on  back. Framed is a vanished gallery frame solid wood.


"Interlude" shows an abstract painting with a vibrant composition containing a variety of hues and textural strokes. Dominant colors in this painting include shades of gold, orange, green, red, and blue. The use of color is rich and layered, with some areas where the colors bleed into each other, suggesting movement and depth. The visual field is saturated with these intense colors, and there are also splatters and drips of paint, adding to the dynamic quality of the work.


The layers are expressive and gestural, with varying degrees of thickness and opacity across the panel. There are also sections where the paint is applied thinly, allowing the layers underneath to show through, creating a sense of history and complexity.


This landscape offers interactions of form, color, and texture. Implied lines and shapes intersect and overlap, drawing the viewer's eye across the panel in different directions. This  painting evokes a feeling of organized chaos, with a balance between energy and harmony.


The painting is contained within a simple wood gallery frame, which provides a boundary for the artwork and contrasts with the organic, free-form nature of the painting itself. The overall impact of this piece is one of boldness and visual intensity, likely to evoke varied interpretations and emotional responses from different viewers.
