Painters, or I might more correctly say, “colorist painters” are taught to look for light in the shadows. Black is NOT a color!

Black is the absence of light. Think black hole, vaccuum. Nada. Empty space.

Learning to see color and light in the dark parts of my paintings, I have also grown accustomed to finding Light in every human being, in every dark day, and every terrible thing that happens in the world.

No! this is NOT easy!

It stretches my “Faith” muscle every single day!

Be the Light!

Hermitage of Montesiepi

Muse Thalia posed for this vignette in the ruins of the abbey at Montesiepi. Inspired by my recent watercolors, I felt wash and line would capture the simple elegance of the ruins stripped bare of ecclesiastical fanfare.

I especially like the slender window beside the slender figure. Scale speaks volumes to such a simple statement. I like the economy of it, less is more.
