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.
“Never change the course of a line until you have to. Never change the plane of a form until you have to. Never change the tone of a colour or form until you have to. If you follow these injunctions intelligently you will practice that great economy which is necessary to expression in your medium. Every change must count, and count strong.” – Robert Henri (1865-1929)
