My Science of Vision :)

Okay okay I admit it, I'm a color nerd.  
I am ever so fascinated with how our brains perceive color.

Color is a lightwave, or some such other thing, 
(insert science here)
traveling to our eyes (rods and cones) and then interpreted by our brains into what we recognize as gray, silver, pink, etc. 

Color ONLY exists in our brains.
Furthermore, scientifically PINK does not exist at all!

isn't in the light spectrum,  
not a wavelength, 
and not in rainbows! 

 HERE and HERE. 
are links to the scientific explanations. 

So that means,
Vision is this curious created world in our heads!

AND for that matter
what might be traveling around out there in lightwaves that we can't see because our rods and cones aren't receptive enough?

Think about it this way-
we're told dogs can't see color.
 SO since dogs can't see color they can't see rainbows.
But that doesn't mean the rainbow isn't there. 

what can't we see?

Maybe ghosts, possibly fairies, definitely angels :D

Maybe dogs can't see color but can see awesome stuff we can't!
We see a rainbow - they see a band of angels in the sky!

Maybe it's close to Christmas and I'm full of joy and spirit(s)

I live in a hopeful world that blobs of color magically transform inside your rods and cones and you see silver beads ...

on a silver purse

In a Make-Believe world of pink that isn't there!

I'm hanging on to the original painting of "Pink" until I paint the larger version.

Archival Ink Reproductions of "Pink" are available
unframed for $40.00

Framed Reproductions for $130.00 + shipping

  I hope your Holiday Season is starting off magical!
 Love, joy, peace, pink,
AND angels to you and yours!! :D

Leap of Faith

It took a leap of faith
and an immeasurable amount of help from family and friends...
To leave snow shovels behind
and head home to Atlanta.

I could NOT have gotten luckier to score this awesome new studio space!

It usually takes me a while to break in a new studio, 
So I began a painting from life
to help adjust to new light sources.

The plan was to do a study on paper first,
then try to tackle the large canvas.

the last brushstroke of the study had not yet dried
when I was contacted about two awesome commissions!

A GINORMOUS 72"x72" sandwich painting commission

and a killer portrait commission!!

So purse off the easel for now
and I'm happily settled in and working on the study for the sandwich! :D

In-progress shots coming soon!

It's good to be home! :)
