A Light Story
While creating the art for my September event at Exhibit A, I considered various words to represent the theme for my show. And suddenly, I realized the common thread through the paintings is the strong light in each piece. So I chose “A Light Story”.
“A Light Story” is not one genre. It’s an eclectic mix of florals, street scenes, and waterscapes. In all of these paintings, I was attracted to the light and shadows. And the more extreme, the better.
Flowers are a natural draw for me. I love all flowers. I have an English rose garden and marvel at the delicate petals. To bring them alive on my canvas, I place high attention on careful color mixing with minute adjustments for value, color, and temperature. This is difficult, but I like the challenge.
Street scenes are now appearing more frequently on my easel. All of the scenes are from photos I’ve taken, with bright sunlight and shadows. As I paint, the scenes bring back wonderful memories.
Water… I love the look, feel, and sound of water. Water makes me happy, attracting me to experience pools, creeks, lakes, or the ocean. I’ve studied the way light falls on the ripples of waves and the wakes from boats. So I now paint more boats and enjoy every minute.
I like to experiment with mediums and surfaces but paint mostly in oil, which dominates my September show at Exhibit A. But now that the show is ready, I intend to play with some abstracts and landscapes, most likely combining the two. And yes, there will be a strong light pattern.
