Lights" Oil Series
During the Fall of 1998, Mary Deutschman conducted an adult painting
class at Beck Center affiliated with the Cleveland Institute of
Art. This provided fresh insights and subject matter for me.
The series permitted me to delve into various transformations
of various types of illumination. The primary types developed
here are bright outdoor light, interior incandescent light, floodlight,
and mirror reflected light.
Each painting reflects a different relationship in the transformation
of luminescence. The center painting "Four Lights" develops
the theme incorporating all four transformations.
