"Sunrise and Sunset"
($40.00....6" x 6"....mounted on a 1/8" depth clayboard panel)
"Each day hands out a new beginning marked by a sunrise and sunset." Isn't it nice that we all have a fresh start each day? Yesterday has gone and tomorrow hasn't come, but today is a new beginning. Yea!
If you could actually see the original piece, you would notice that it really does look like a sunrise over a canyon or with a large bluff in the foreground. What I am doing with all my pieces now is responding to what is there and then writing an appropriate quote. It's very absorbing and requires deep thought. So naturally I must do it very early in the morning when I have a new beginning because I can't put two words together to make a complete sentence after 7:00 in the evening!
Take note of the diagonal bands of color moving across the space. It's those diagonals that give a piece lots of energy. Even when doing traditional painting, paying attention to the brush strokes and making use of diagonals will do wonders to create an energetic piece. Just one more thing to think about.
Please contact me personally to inquire about this piece.
