New: “Raking Light”

I have a great book, by the artist Hans Hoffman, titled “Color Creates Light”. Long book, but the central message he conveyed was that whether an artist’s painting approach is abstract, or representational, the important thing to convey was the “magic” of nature through color. His work is largely, if not entirely, abstract, and explosive with color. His work, and teachings, inspired many artists…many more so than me. While my familiarity and knowledge of him is not as great as others, his use of color to create a sense of light has had a powerful impact on how I use color. This recent piece is a good example of how color is used to create light…highly lit, ambient, and shadowed. “Raking Light” 16 x 20
