This piece is dear to me in many ways. The subject, a cold morning walk in the mist,is particularly moving for me but the most important thing about this piece is actually how it developed.
I had given it some thought and planned carefully the washes, but then something happened… I lost my plan in the mists of colors and the painting played out sort of on his own… just like the character in a novel does for a writer. Really fascinating.
I started a new series while finishing Fields of Color. The series “Fields of Stars” is inspired to the astonishing display of lights and colors that the Universe bestows on us every night. It is also a metaphor for keeping the faith when life is at its darkest.
