My quest is to make you love light as much as I do. My deep affection for this thing, which allows our primary sense to indulge in the glory that is existence, is never going away. I am enamored beyond repair. Some enjoy sound so much they devote their lives to music. I have surrendered to my devotion to light. Some may think this silly coming from a painter. But if you compare a painting by Turner to one by Mondrian, or one by Monet to one by Pollack, you can understand my gist (see examples at bottom of today's post). It is interesting to me that both Mondrian and Pollack find a bit of light radiating from their paintings by simply using black as contrast to the white of their canvases. This kind of contrast occurs in my Monet and Turner examples, and also in my painting. The difference is Monet, Turner, and I want to grasp light, savoring it like a fine wine. Pollack and Mondrian? Not so much!
