This painting is the second in a series of paintings related to the nature of light, its' properties and its' wonder. For this painting I had a very confined (loosely constructed) boxy area bound by colored cardboard that I purchased and some that I made, along with some colored glass pieces. In the center were several smaller and larger pieces of aluminum foil with the shiny and the dull sides facing up, more or less catching the light that was being shone into this confined world. The result of this attempt is what turned into this image. There was some cropping in Photoshop, but not much. This is what I was looking at. OH---there were also 15-20 other photos at various angles that I didn't use. That's the stuff you don't see. The actual size of this area of strong reds and warms is about 8' x 10". The way the surfaces lineup with the light source and and the lack of light and the changing of the light is all based on the fact that the foil is bent - this way and that - and that light travels in straight lines, while sometimes spreading out based on some quirk of surface.
