The Daily Paintings of Don Gray
Sure, it may be about light, but it also seems to tell a story-- or at least to evoke a sense of 'place'...
Thanks Jason, I appreciate that.
I often think the same thing. The subject is a good framework for painting the light.I can go to the same spot and paint again and again. The subject stays the same, it is the light that is different every time. (or my mood)
Hi Frank--so true. For many people, "meaning" in a representational work resides only in subject matter. That is a narrow and simplistic view. Artists recognize subject as a pretext--the launching point for a variety of formal and emotional explorations. The range of associations and meanings that a good painting can convey may ultimately have very little to do with the thing depicted.
I love the way the light gives the feeling of freshness--it feels like early morning to me!
