This is all about night and day, and where they cross over each other. Where they meet there are new images created every morning. The nighttime image is enveloped by a new kind of light that throws a different range of shadows. And yet nighttime lurks, still, in the corners. Not yet willing to concede defeat by the weak rays of an upcoming sun. The daylight, in this piece is actually painted over a nighttime image, complete with deep blue sky and moonlight casting shadows. The result is a very densely colored morning light that barely registers in some places. And so it goes every day. As the sun rises, there is a new competition. And for Mother Nature, a new makeover, complete with guarantees of looking “Marvelous Darling”
