|The Light in the World III, oil on canvas, 40 x 40 inches|
Saks Galleries, Denver, CO $6650 framed
Lately, I've begun a new series of paintings and wanted to do an oil of clouds minimally, with the emphasis on light. The common theme in all of these, "The Light in the World" series paintings is light expressed and diffused throughout the scene, often in an etherial way.
Color rather than composition is primary here and the many combinations have the singular purpose of creating a glow that in every part of the canvas. There were many sessions in the studio with this one but finally, the oil started to come together with each part of the scene contributing to the other.
This oil really has a presence and a life to it now and it will inspire new ideas.
