What Color Means to Me
Featured in Issue 22 for my use of color as a painter.
As a painter, color means everything to me. To recreate the subtle shifts of light that happen in the landscape, I usually layer very thin veils of color. I love how light changes with the seasons; the clean, pinky blues of a winter dusk reflecting on snow versus the rich glow that saturates the atmosphere of a summer evening. As a traveler, some of my favorite things to discover in a new place are the qualities of its light, how its buildings are painted, or just the color of its earth. I take a lot of photos for reference, but often they don’t capture the movement of color that happens in a place so I rely on my memories of how it looked and felt.
