Excited by a development in my idea for creating artworks using electric light as the medium.

"I love those who can smile in trouble, who can gather strength from distress, and grow brave by reflection. 'Tis the business of little minds to shrink, but they whose heart is firm, and whose conscience approves their conduct, will pursue their principles unto death."
- Leonardo da Vinci

I am excited when an idea for creating new pieces, takes my head into new spaces. When an idea bounces around like a marble in a concrete room! can be exhausting, filling pages of notebooks with words and scribbles of ideas, it could all lead to nothing, but the journey is exhilarating and certainly entertaining. There should be 36 hours in a day, and we should be able to choose to live to 100!

I am thinking more and more of interpreting my 'atmospheric' paintings as light installations. I will have to seek out someone expert in lighting to discuss. I would also like to explore them using video, if i could manipulate and alter the video image somehow, to make it more 'painterly'.
In the studio today, some small quick studies for a suite of nocturne/moonlight pieces.
