FLAMINGO   30" x 30”   November 27, 2015   

 

Flamingo alternates two iridiscent colors, a pale violet, and pale turquoise, reminding me of the flash of iridiscence under birds' wings, as they take off.  

 

Somehow I associate this iridiscence to a light at high altitudes, and the triggering of dreams. The painting feels simultanesouly wild and serene, openly impressionistic, and an ensemble leitmotif that transports me to some otherworldly altitude, far from the crudeness of earth.
