STORM LIGHT V
Oil and Wax, 10 x 12 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.
“The artist should have a powerful will. He should be powerfully possessed by one idea. He should be intoxicated with the idea of the thing he wants to express. If his will is not strong, he will see all kinds of unessential things. A picture should be the expression of the will of the painter.” – Robert Henri (1865-1929)
