Here is a short note sent to me regarding on of my new paintings at the Kilby Gallery. It's a treat to hear how another reads and reacts to something I made, very gratifying!
I had to reach out to comment on After the Fire. The painting really speaks to me! The foreboding sky in the distance that is so ominous. However the sunlight around the fire pit creates a warmth that feels fleeting. I am cold and warm at the same time as I stare at it. I find myself worrying about the approaching night fall and being stuck outside yet knowing I can retreat to a cabin. Not sure if you have to be one with Georgian Bay to feel this but I certainly do. I love it.
