"Come Sail Away" Karen Kennedy
Artist Statement--> It is the lighting that captures our attention, telling a story of the time, place and the atmosphere thereby setting a mood. The Masters of Art understood this long before they had the amazing variety of colors to work with that we now enjoy. For me it is the joy and challenge of judging and mixing color to define what the light is doing. Answering questions like Why does the color green fade and disappear in low light or What happens to red in a shadow. Whether painting a portrait, landscape or abstract; my focus turns to the nuance of the color changes.
