- In this luminous Night Scene
Painting, "Sunset over Golden Rows of Corn" an original
oil on panel, I am attempting to paint in response to a waveing
field of corn which had just turned golden in the fall just before
harvest. Yes I took artistic License and set the sun in haze
where it would backlight the sparkling tassels and highlights
on the way to dissolving in a luminous athsmosphere beginning
to meld with a setting sun. This place is in the Laurel highlands
right before Falling Water on the way to Farmington, PA.
When I went back a week later all the corn stalks were gone.
- Somewhere between reality and imagination this artwork was
born to appease my desires for waving fields of golden corn rows
in the land of plenty,
