I am currently painting all Arctic wildlife using white impasto paint on white canvas, with color only for the eyes or other colorful aspects of the head. When light interacts with the impasto paint, it creates shadows, and the shadows are the image which the viewer sees. In most images, I also create fractal patterns which provide “fill” shadowing to make the images more visible. When I first began this work, I thought there might be about 50 or 60 living creatures in the Arctic & sub-arctic regions around the North Pole. I have discovered that there are thousands including birds, animals, visible sea life, plankton, bugs, and a very large number of plants.
As white is the color for healing, the painting ‘Cranes’, was chosen for this facility with the knowledge that white cranes are revered as symbols of strength and longevity.
