Artist explores still life, landscapes in Capitol show

Autumnal red trees, beside buildings, interact nicely with “Patchy Snow in Fall” in another mountain landscape, while the orange-crimson sail of one of three “Spanish Boats,” creates a distorted reflection.

Particularly painterly, too, and perhaps benefitting from use of a palette knife, are Cobb’s oils of green fields under blue and white, cloud-filled skies, in “Susan’s Farm” and “Midwestern Northern.”

Offering us a look at the work of an artist who believes that “high quality is more important than having a signature look or style,” the solo show is well worth visiting. Sponsored by the Oklahoma Arts Council, it runs through Dec. 9 in the capitol’s second

floor Governor’s Gallery.

Hours are from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mondays through Fridays. Call 521-2931 or visit the website at www.arts.ok.gov for information.
