It's been a tough summer for painting...

My jealous paint box has been screaming for attention! Seems I've been spending to much time with T.S. Eliot, Langston Hughes, John Cheever, radicals, radicands, polynomials, Mendel, Eukaryotes, Genotypes, and Darwin this summer. Can't wait for this semester to end! However, in the absence of painting... Eliot, Hughes, and Cheever have kept me sane... can't say to much for the others... :)

“Life, Light, and Pigment” is a collection of oil and acrylic paintings from the past two years by artist, Bernie Rosage Jr. Most of the 40 paintings in the exhibit were painted from life, either in the studio or on location en plein aire. “Painting from direct observation really hones the artist’s skills and develops the art of seeing”, states Rosage. The exhibit also shows how Rosages’ work has evolved over a two year span. “I have moved beyond just capturing what my subject looks like to something deeper”… “I am striving for the divine and sublime as I paint now”, added Rosage. Bringing everyday objects to life in fresh and artistic ways by capturing light, mood, and atmosphere are goals he is consciously and consistently achieving.
