Black and Light
(Not black and white)
|A new style of painting that I am working on|
|I moved this around the house trying to capture the right colors with different lighting. The painting is close but the frame is way off-very colorless, unlike the original.|
|The frame is very old and the glass is wavy, but the artwork is very new and very unique.|
|The scratches seem to just work as if they try to reach down to blend with the trees|
|An area of Central Park 'The Conservatory'|
This area of the park is fascinating to me. in 1917 it was called The Conservatory Water because it was intended to have a greenhouse built on the very spot that the pond or reflecting pool sits today. Instead, it became a place where model sailboats were propelled, the greenhouse never built. The sailboats with their long sticks were extended into the water in hope for a strong wind. Today they have remote controls that power the little boats all around. This painting is my imagination at work. What would it be like at night? Remember, that dark is only the absence of light. It's not scary, its just not illuminated. We only know light because of darkness and we only know darkness because of light. I know, too deep.
