Illumination Abstract Oil Painting
This abstract oil painting is one of those few where for me the image seems to come directly from some unknown place and out onto the canvas. When I first painted the blue and yellow parts, I set the canvas aside for about a week before working on it further, because I wasn't sure where it should go next and because I thought it wasn't bad just the way it was. But eventually I added some white to increase the effect of light emerging from the cloud, which I see as spirit energy bursting forth at a moment of mental, emotional, or soulful illumination and enlightenment. Blue is the color of Jupiter's planetary energy, the source of gods of the Air and of wealth and expansiveness. This image is a way of calling forth that generous Jovian energy that most of us find so warming and soothing.
The original painting is oil on canvas, 24 x 24"/61 x 61cm with a traditional 3/4"/2cm profile and is ready to frame.
