STORM LIGHT IV
Oil and Wax, 8 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.
“Low art is just telling things; as, There is the night. High art gives the feel of the night. The latter is nearer reality although the former is a copy. A painter should be interested not in the incident but in the essence of his subject.” – Robert Henri (1865-1929)
