"Miles to Go", Contemporary Abstract Painting by Stephen Remick
Titled “Miles to Go”, a line from the Robert Frost poem “Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening”. Snow glows from moonlight in a clear night sky. This painting bridges the space between abstraction and representation. The painting itself measures 42" high by 50" wide by 1.5" deep. This is acrylic on canvas. The floating frame is a dark brown mahogany. Including the frame, the overall measurements are 44.5″ × 52.5″ x about 2". It’s wired and ready to hang. Please look at the images carefully. This is painted very loosely with quick brushstrokes and intentional “irregularities” and drips inherent with painting. From an angle, light picks up different textures and sheen due to varying thickness of paint over the canvas. The frame shows a little wear, like minor scuff marks, but doesn’t interfere with the overall effect. Please note: To bridge the gap between local and national delivery, I most likely would be able to extend the distance for free local delivery or add a nominal delivery fee if your location isn’t too far from my studio.

His house is in the village though; He will not see me stopping here To watch his woods fill up with snow. My little horse must think it queer To stop without a farmhouse near Between the woods and frozen lake The darkest evening of the year. He gives his harness bells a shake To ask if there is some mistake. The only other sound’s the sweep Of easy wind and downy flake. The woods are lovely, dark and deep, But I have promises to keep, And miles to go before I sleep, And miles to go before I sleep.
