Afternoon Light, Superba Avenue

16 x 20 inch oil on canvas plein-air painting, sealed with a protective coat of Winsor Conserv-art Varnish, and ready to hang in a handsome contemporary black and gold floater frame. A rare thunderstorm came off the Pacific quickly and washed the streets of Venice clean. The clouds cleared, and the clear afternoon light cast long shadows on Superba Avenue.

It is folly to attempt to record a world in flux; but the challenge of open-air painting compels me to capture that evasive effect. The process is as valuable as the end result – concentrated work that heightens the present with a sense of urgency. To see the world in the unique way of an artist is in itself endlessly entertaining; and engaging with it in paint, even more so.
