Seeing the light is what the human eye does. If there is no light (total darkness), we are unable to "see" anything. In darkness, there is no light for our eyes to record, no impulse to send our brain, no image or picture in our awareness, nothing to interpret visually.

What do we do when we paint? The colors we choose aren't "what we do." We paint the light! We paint the directions the light comes from, we paint the warmth or coolness of the light (its color). We paint the intensity of the light: is it full strength or filtered?

Come "see the light" and paint with me. You will see color in a whole new light!
