This painting is full of warmth.
The branches fill the canvas, reaching out in every direction. The bright sunlight glows from the center, making parts of the trunk light up almost in white.
The branches darken as they reach towards the periphery of the canvas, some of the extremities almost in black.
The pink and gold colors are warm, and the details delicate.
One of my biggest inspirations in my art is the desire to paint light in new ways. It sounds trite to say I have a fascination with light, because our eyes perceiving light is the foundation of all vision.
All visual artists have a fascination with light!
But the concept of light truly inspires me: the duality of light and darkness, and the metaphorical meanings of light.
A person’s “light” is something special about them; it’s the gift that they have to give the world. Keeping your light shining, not letting the difficulties in life dim your light, is a worthy goal.
