While on the subject of Light ................

"Ex Veritate Lux" oil on canvas 30x40 ins.
...........don't ask why. It's remotely possible that you could bump up against an individual that sincerely feels that visual statements like this have at least some therapeutic value - if only for the painter. Well.... given the boat we're all in, it felt like trying to bail the Titanic with a teacup.
For the dead language challenged (like myself) the title means "From Truth ....... Light".
In case you hadn't noticed, in our present world it's "From Lies ........ Darkness".
You're going to need more than good luck to come out on the bright side of this one.
But ............. now for something a little lighter -

"Centro San Miguel" 9x12 in. oil on panel SOLD
It remains to be great fun to throw color and light at a little board in the streets of San Miguel. Our new studio/gallery is on the upper floor of the yellow building. I think we've got the best view in town!

"En los Portales" oil on panel 14x14 ins.
Yes - more color and light ................ it's what it's all about. Much more fun than the dark stuff.
Maybe if we all just ignore the dark stuff it'll go away???????
I would suggest that you go for a mix! - it has more resonance - yin/yang - places you on an actual planet, in the middle of an actual universe. You might even begin to see where the leaks in the hull really are ........ yes, - it's possible you could be looking in the wrong direction, friends.
