Bill Stone’s Timothy's Dreaming is a vibrant evocation of summer brimming with art historical references.  The rich yellows, blues, and purples conjure up daydreams of summer afternoons spent in the sun and idyllic bucolic splendor. Thick impasto bursts forth from the picture and brings the work into the three-dimensional space, with petal-shaped passages of oil paint swirling around the canvas in a harmonious dance of color and form. The leaf-shaped dabs of paint providing form to the hale bale, sky, and field is an ode to the dot patterns of Pointillism (check out Pointillist master Georges Seurat’s A Sunday on La Grande Jatte at The Art Institute Chicago). We can also see the influence of Claude Monet’s famous, late 19th-century Haystack paintings that similarly emanate a palpable impression of warm summer days (see the great impressionist painting Stacks of Wheat for further reference).
