Art of the Day: Sunday April 09, 2017

Winging Home - SOLD

- by Karen Winters

This week's theme: I See The Light

The sun influences and orders our lives. During the day we are surrounded by sunlight. At night we must compensate for it's absence or withdraw from industry and activity until it's return. As aware as we are of the sun, we rarely see it. Most of us don't stand around staring at the sun, but rather observe the sun through the way it interacts with the world around us. This week's Art of the Day looks at the sun and some of the ways we experience it.


Art: Winging Home - SOLD by Artist Karen Winters
This painting, as much of my work, portrays dramatic light and is influenced by both realism and California impressionism. The presence of the small sea bird suggests a spiritual theme as well as the title, "Winging Home." Although warm colors predominate, there are hints of blue in the waves for complimentary punch. I kept the brushwork loose and fluid to suggest the activity of the surf.
