STORM LIGHT III
Acrylic, 18 x 24 inches
The Storm Light series of paintings was inspired by the variety of light I’ve witnessed before, during and after severe stormy weather. There are no depictions of specific locations but they are more my impressions of the light present during adverse weather conditions. They are based primarily on memories and/or historical notes regarding the nature and subtleties of the interplay of light during such events.
“We retain traces of different depth and for different lengths of time of the impressions we have obtained from nature. The selection of these impressions determines all the characteristics of the work, that is to say, they are the “being”, the character of the painter.” – Ferdinand Hodler (1853-1918)
