The Light in the World III Oil on canvas, 40 x 40 inches
How to make a strip of land and clouds interesting? In my case, color is a first choice and it was used in abundance here. Alongside the color is an intent to bring light into every part of the painting as a continuation of this series. This is the fourth Light in the World oil and after living with them all on the easel for so many months, it has changed the way I view things to some degree. Looking up from the computer and out the window right now, I can easily imagine that what I am presently seeing could have more life and joy in it and I'm encouraged to make more oils to that end. What has emerged from the sometimes dark and fearful forces that surround us at this time is a peaceful and loving opposite. The phrase comes to mind, "There is light, in abundance everywhere and freely given to all, if we choose." A worthy option and there will be more paintings to follow on that beam.
