January 2, 2008 Theme in Gold and Purple

17x22 pastel on board, Will be in the gallery, buy it there!

Yesterday I went to visit the Whistler landscapes at the Freer Gallery. His landscapes are all so subtle and abstract. I love the way he names his work by colors and music references. So thinking of him and Carl Sandburg's poem, Theme in Yellow, the title was born.
Theme in Yellow by Carl Sandburg
I SPOT the hills
With yellow balls in autumn.
I light the prairie cornfields
Orange and tawny gold clusters (segment)

I like this one. The light is radiant.
