The Light Comes Through

Light Comes Through is all about light, physical and otherwise. I love to take an abstract painting and give it a light source.Then I give the light some obstacles to work around. This idea of how light makes it's way through if at all possible is so interesting to me. Inevitably, the light does what it is supposed to; nourish whatever needs to be nourished. What an amazing thing...and it happens naturally.

I'd like to think that is how good things come into our lives. Good things don't always happen when we need them to, but they do happen, even when we think it impossible. Just like it isn't always sunny, but when it is, the sunlight gets to where it needs to go.

Light Comes Through is my first official painting of 2010. I created part of it in Wood Icing during a live painting event we were holding in conjunction with a Chesterfield Arts opening. Painting live is not my favorite thing to do, because I get so nervous, but I think it turned out pretty nice. It is hanging in the window at the Gateway Gallery in Clayton with about 11 other paintings of mine right now until April 3. We will be holding a reception where we are unveiling the Meeting of the Minds piece tomorrow night Feb. 26, 2010 from 6-9.
