My last day in the high country and the magic of light gave me one parting crescendo as I made my way back to the warmth of my van and waiting friends. My fascination with light and how to capture it is what drives me to paint. Ninety percent of the time I choose light that is racing at me at a little over 186,00 miles per second into my eyes. The subject in most cases is secondary. Oh! I can see the composition of what I’m choosing, but the light and all of its subtlety’s of colors that move over, around and past objects, thats what captures my attention. Using the smallest of brush’s, I just want to stop the light and say hello, how you do-in. This painting is on archival board mounted on a 6x8 inch varnished wooden box with no framing required. $140

Gerald, I have been admiring your work for months via the daily painting website. I have to say that I believe this is my favorite...or at least it will be until you paint something equally amazing. Thank you for sharing your beautiful work with the world.
