|"Fire Fade", 6 x 6 inches, Acrylic on wood panel|
I started this painting focusing on the light and dark to capture a setting sun over a lake. A site I know very well living in Michigan. As I worked on it I realized it is not just the light, dark, or fire like colors, the size and shapes are just as important. The bright light distorts objects. Branches tend to twist and warp in the light. This one of those things you see but don't see. Feel like a my eyes opened a little wider today.
