5x7 oil on canvas panel
A different reality....the night world rises and orange merges into the blue...opposites of the color spectrum. How is this possible? We take this kind of ordinary magic for granted...but it is really incredible when comtemplated. As an observer... what does the boundary of these two worlds look like..feel like...and what color is it? How can this magic realm be translanted into paint? A common art principle explanation is that the half-tone [color change area] is a darker and redder shade of the color in the light and the leading edge of the shadowed area is a tad darker shade of itself. But I feel there is more to this...there must be a rainbow of colors represented between day and night...the warm to cool transition. Perhaps a micro view of this limbo land would be very beautiful in a larger painting...and would certainly be a real challenge.
