I have been thinking lately of my legacy as an artist and have been wanting to push the limit on certain things at which I think I excel. I have always thought myself as very good at dealing with very tricky issues of light (with apologies to Mr Kinkaid). This is the completed work in which I tried to paint the the mood created by a late spring storm that breaks, and will often bless us with my favorite whether phenomenon the sun-shower. There was something magical to me about a sun-shower. I think because my mother use to like them so much, I began to like them also. I liked them because they brought such dramatic contrasts of light and dark and made the world come alive with richly saturated colors that were tinted with the red and violet hues created by the Doppler effect. The air was clean and clear, and blue skies and fair weather were on there way. It was great to be a child with my whole life in front of me filled with wonderful natural events as simple and as beautiful as a sun-shower. I hope you all enjoy the complexities of light in this offering it was a whole lot of fun thinking and plotting out this watercolor.
