“All is quiet, the world is still. Yet through it all I can always touch the warmth of my love for you” – Mackenzie Thorpe
In this limited edition Mackenzie Thorpe print for sale, a single figure pulls a heart ten times his size through a snow covered field. The sky is dark, but the moon shines through a thicket of trees, providing light for his journey. The figure appears to be a small child wearing the dark hooded duffle coat that is instantly recognizable in Thorpe’s work. He firmly believes that no matter what challenges we are going through in life, love will get us through it, keep us warm, and sustain us. Although the figure is alone, he has a huge amount of love and hope to help him on his journey.
The serene landscape has a sense of peace and quiet as the snow falls and sticks to the ground and trees. The background is a gorgeous dark blue pastel as Thorpe has perfectly captured the color of the sky during a winter storm and the light from the moon. Thorpe often paints from his own experiences, utilizing landscapes that are both local and personal to him. It is likely that this landscape was inspired by the North Yorkshire countryside where he grew up.
Thorpe’s artwork is rooted in authenticity; He is driven by his feelings and emotions when creating his much loved pictures. This artwork is an excellent example of Thorpe’s artistic talents as his work is honest and immediate. He uses his hands and fingers as an extension of the pastels to expertly blend the subtle colors in this landscape and fluffy, snow covered ground. He draws exactly how he is feeling in the moment, capturing the essence of our human existence. The clouds seem to part and the light from the moon shines through, suggesting that the worst of our struggles are behind us. The vibrant red heart in the center of the image emphasizes the message that love can get us through even the toughest terrains and situations.
The gorgeous scenery and first snow in this Mackenzie Thorpe artwork is not dissimilar to something you may see near our gallery in Lake Tahoe during a winter storm.
