Occasional thoughts,reminiscences and ideas from the artist Darrell Baschak
Wednesday, July 20, 2011
Today was a wild weather day, very unsettled and some extremely evil looking clouds. This morning on my way to work I witnessed a very interesting weather event and I guess it stuck in my head because it came back to me in my studio this evening. I had simply wanted to tone some canvas's for an upcoming Retreat and instead this painting manifested itself. Somewhat like my buddy Chris Wikman I used some funky colours that I normally don't use, and although they are much more toned down than Chris's I think they are successful and reminiscent of nature. I called it "Praludium" because I was listening to a Bach piece by that name played by the guitarist John Williams. I thought it fitting and somewhat uncanny how this all happened.
