Transient Light

 T R A N S I E N T   L I G H T  –  OIL PAINTINGS OF THE NEW ENGLAND COAST  

There is a subtle mystery in transitions, in human life no less than between the shore, sea, and sky.

This ongoing series itself remains in transition. It began with idea of depicting the Atlantic coast in the midst of the changeover from winter to spring, when the atmosphere is full of mist and fog and the sky and ocean grays hint at warmer blues, violets, and golds. 

As the work has progressed, it has become more about light and dark, and more and more about painting – specifically, using color, texture, shape, mood, and the drama of light and shadow to evoke the unseen in the seen:

“…to express the fact of distance – that’s yet another reason why landscapes are the most genuinely religious pictures.” – Aldous Huxley
