Ode to Orange


20x20"
Oil on two inch profile gallery wrapped stretched canvas
$489.00 (Canadian funds)

A funny thing happened with this one. I really didn't want to paint with orange. I was so focused on that that it was all I could think about so I got it out of my system and went all the way orange with it!

I have become quite fascinated, well maybe the better word is obsessed, with the science behind light. I am on a journey of capturing the perfect balance between dark and light, discovering that one can not exist without the other and more so how to convey their ways of coexisting. Yes I am speaking of the capturing of light to the canvas however this is so true of life. I have been living in a bit of dark place lately however there is a movement toward light, partially because spring is finally here, but also because of some personal choices. LIfe is brighter and somehow I want to capture that. I am captivated by light and want to celebrate it!
