Red Roof Shed at the Edge of Dawn

Red Roof Shed at the Edge of Dawn, oil on canvas, 36" x 36"
Now on display Jan. 12 - Jan. 30, Mount Memorial Hall Art Gallery, Art Faculty Exhibit, Grace College. Artist reception Friday Jan. 16, 7-9pm.
This new painting from my Fact and Ambiguity series, suggests a light reminiscent of the 17th century landscape painters' interest in luminism but with a modern twist. The fact is the scene, a shed, a tree, etc. The ambiguity is the distillation of the forms, the sublime of the objects - a subtraction of information that still conveys a luminous effect. Here the dawn light cuts through the early morning fog on an Indiana country field.
