The Colour of Light

The Colour of Light
36" x 48"  acrylic on canvas  SOLD
I finished this painting in December and have been mulling over what to title it. It is loosely based on a photo of trees that I took when in British Columbia a few years ago. I love the colours and the painterly brushstrokes. In trying to find an appropriate title I came across of poem by Australian poet Dorothea MacKellar called The Colours of Light. Her use of language in describing colour resonated with me and I think illustrates much of what I was trying to do with a paint brush. If you would like to read her poem - you can here. In order to avoid copyright problemos I altered her title, slightly. Enjoy the Easter weekend!
