Turner’s Sky

Turner’s Sky

Turner’s painting is wide open, the sky is ever-present. At times he takes us into the sky, perhaps it has already always been enveloping the totality. Color with Turner becomes an interior experience. Color objectives the tenor of the enveloping space. Color in Turner’s work is more present than objects.

Color is emerging and it is emergence. Eye and spirit are unison. This then is an homage to Turner’s sky, would he have painted it blue.

About the Optimism of Color Blog

For 365 days, I am posting a photo or piece of art that I have created that reflects what I call the Optimism of Color. Through vibrant colors and bold visceral forms, these works shout out my joy at being alive, and my good fortune at being able to continue to make art after a near death experience.

Each of the images I post brings a smile to my face. I hope they bring you similar joy and laughter through the Optimism of Color.
