The Dreaming

Here’s my latest painting, “The Dreaming.” I wanted to share it because of the odd muted tones: a raw umber and a low-intensity sage green. Even though these wander far from my preferred palette, notice the high value contrast I lean towards in most everything I do: the dark darks and light lights. I love high contrast. So even when I work with muted, quiet colors (as opposed to outrageously bright schemes) I go for high contrast somewhere (usually value). It gives me immense satisfaction and pleasure to see such a dynamic range of dark and light. That’s part of my voice.
