I am not reinventing light, but I am interpreting it. That's what happened yesterday. I have always enjoyed looking at the many paintings of haystacks by Claude Monet (below, see a reproduction of one of those paintings). So, it is not surprising that "2016 No.18" is unravelling in the way it is. The surprise is my interest in using this light filled idea to find emotional reality, of which I think my paintings need a shot. I believe I am feeling this way because of the confidence I have developed in the technical aspects of light-dark contrast, form, and composition. It feels to me that I have prepared myself for a more profound intervention into emotional transference. Thus the light! Light is becoming one more tool in my box of tools.
