Light streaming in through a window.
My mother's print of Vermeer's maid pouring light into a milk jug.
Pierre Bonnard's shimmers of sun and moonlight.
The cheerful shouts of Matisse bouquets on the windowsill.
Effulgence on a bowl of fruit.
Fruits of the Midi by Auguste Renoir
The intimate glow of a lamp on a crumpled bed.
In the Bedroom by Peter Ilsted
And the blue windows of twilight.
Twilight Interior by George Clausen
Light outside, dark inside, backlight , bright interiors and dark rectangles of windows holding back the midnight. The cold light of winter landscape outside and a cheerful interior palette.
The Master Bed Andrew Wyeth
Window in Sunlight by Anyon Dieffenbach
Robert Strong Woodwardby George Kersting, 1811
Come explore the light and shadow of your exteriors and interiors. The secret corners of a dark room and the spring sun shining through open windows into the chambers of your favorite memories.
As I noted in this drawing, "there is more to a city sky and a city room than meets the eye". Big Bird, poodles, shopping bags and snakes. What's on your window sill?
