"Waiting" oil on canvas, 18 x 24 inches. This is a continuation on my theme from a previous painting, called "Looking Outward". It's inspiration comes from a quote by the famous psychologist and author, Carl Jung... "Your vision will become clear only when you look into your heart. Who looks outside, dreams. Who looks inside, awakens."

In this piece, I used a turn of the century building as my location, a female model, and more of a focus on the light hitting the building's exterior. "Waiting" is available through K. Nathan Gallery in La Jolla.

Hey Tony, Really like the light on the building! Very poetic along with the building itself. It's great how your reading etc. informs the work.

Thanks Eric, much appreciated! I have enjoyed the process of using the drama of light to convey that sense of poetry, or tell the story.
