Cascading Light

This is one of five similarly themed oil paintings I produced specifically for the spring exhibition at Gallery With A Cause — The New Mexico Cancer Center Foundation. The gallery opening is from 1:30 to 4 p.m. March 14. The idea for this series began last spring, when I did several miniatures for the Masterworks of New Mexico annual show, all inspired by the spring blossoms seen around Albuquerque. I thought some larger paintings of blossoms would be a perfect fit for the cancer center show this year, just in time for the long-awaited spring. The round painting shown here is 25 inches in diameter and is the first round painting I have done since college days. It is a nice change in format and I think works well with this subject. The painting is done on canvas, mounted on panel, unframed but has a space between the painting and wall, which gives it a nice shadowed relief effect.
