Light Show- 24"W by 30"H Oil on Canvas
Storm clouds casting dramatic light on a pastoral valley is not an uncommon scene in Oregon but this particular spot seems to have more than its share of these magical moments. I pass this spot often and it always seems to draw my eye with some sort of beautiful energized interaction between the sky and the land. In this painting, I have tried to capture the energy of that unique moment when a storm becomes a thing of beauty because the light has struggled through the dark and broken through to create a focused light on the valley below. We all want to be able to see the sparkle and excitement that can come from waiting out the hard or even the mundane times of our existence.
