Here Comes the Sun

"Things are Looking Up" - 12 x 24"- oil

Available at Art Access Gallery

The painting above stemmed from a walk in the park with some friends. What started as a day of leisure turned out to be very productive for me. It took me a while to get up the courage to work on this painting but I bit the bullet. After I finished it the glare reminded me of one of those inspirational posters that you often see in offices.

During last month's show in Nashville, I noticed that a lot of folks took a special interest in a painting titled "The Light in Your Eyes." I enjoyed the end result and wanted to do more similar pieces. With this in mind I wanted to test the waters of the Columbus art scene by including this painting in the group show, "New Works" at Art Access Gallery. The opening went fairly well despite the horrific weather conditions.

I love the contrast of the warm with the cool. Great work.
And thanks for the pic of the exhibition. It's good to see the work on a wall... not sure why. Maybe its more 'real'?

Lovely showing of your work, Steven!

Thanks Shirley, Sheila and Elizabeth! I didn't think that posting galery pics would make that much of a difference but that shows how much I know...Thanks for enjoying and following along with my adventures.

Beautiful, Steven! The way you've captured the light in "Things are Looking Up" and "The Light in Your Eyes" is stunning.

Thanks Douglas! My goal is to damage everyone's retinas.

Cheryl McCarley said...

I agree with Douglas, and I love all you're paintings but love how you can damage our retinas!!

Stunning painting...love the color of the tree/leaf silhouettes. There's a lot of landscapes out there, your work has a and intriguing and unique quality even though the subject matter is the same old trees, fields, barns and sky!

Thanks Cheryl! Let me know if you need a new pair of sunglasses.

Thank you Kaylyn! I try to find different twists to conventional landscape subjects. I've got to keep myself interested in what I'm painting.
