Last Light 2

"Lighthouse at Dusk"
oil on panel, 2009
3.5" x 5" (8.89cm x 12.7cm)
private collection

This painting is very much like the previous post except that it is nature instead of manmade. Both show how the subject is sometimes secondary. They are more about the light or time of day than they are the scene itself.

This is worth noting because as I have said in other posts, seeing is very often a matter of interpreting, choosing what to focus on, picking out some facet of what is in front of you and putting that to the image. And it does not always need to be a deep concept. Whether a finished work or a study, it can be simplistic, one idea.52

  1. There is something very mystical and longing about this one. It truly makes me want to be there.
