Light is rest. Light refreshes. Have you ever seen those old paintings that are nearly all dark? Shades of green and blue and all manner of blacks with a figure emerging from the dark like a spectre. Hung in dark places. Like the past was mysterious, cloistered. Maybe they did not own white paint. Maybe the fashions were different then.
Painting not working? Shine a little light.

Yes, I have spent several years painting in a Tonalist style, lots of dark. They disappear on most people’s unlit walls. Now I’m drawn to C O L O R!! That’s why I’m meeting you!
