alfa group exhibition ~ "the external & the contemplative"

I have often wondered where inspiration for a painting originates - the internal or external?  While the external holds a vast array of possibilities and may spark inspiration, it is the individual contemplative state that identifies and then translates the essence of a personal observation into a visual statement for others to experience.

The passage of time, how quickly or slowly time seems to pass, is often relative to the time spent.  Twilight feels fleeting - a magical moment too rapidly left behind.  On this particular evening as dusk turned dark, I witnessed a vibrant green cast shadow move ever so slowly across the face of the cliffs.   Dusk, Leo Carrillo was a gift of both passages of time.

“A Snowy Harvest”  / 24×18  / Private Collection

The much-anticipated display of contemporary-traditional fine art, which spotlights sculpture and paintings of genres ranging from pristine California landscapes and seascapes to figures and still-lifes, moves to this revered Los Angeles cultural institution for the first time.  The 101st Annual Gold Medal Exhibition will feature more than 200 representational works of art from renowned traditional fine artists, who have been active in expanding interest in the plein air heritage associated with the organization’s beginnings in 1909.  The club’s founding artists, who were attracted to California from the Midwest and East Coast by the region’s natural beauty and year-round sunshine, gave birth to the artistic movement now referred to as California Impressionism.
