As an oil painter I find myself scanning my environment for material differently than I do as a watercolorist.
I think of James Turrell, as I pause and take note of sky-ground contrasts. I want to see his crater someday. Tell me how.
I am going to give an art talk on July 24th at 6 or 6:30 at Commerce Gallery here in Lockhart. It will not be about the Dark Ages. Because I know my audience and I don't think they want to here my dark thoughts. But oil painting has been a chance to explore the darker values, compared to the pure white paper days of watercolor.
