light and sanford gifford
You may not already know this, but Sanford Gifford is one of my heroes. He might as well have been named Light Gifford for all the beauty he achieved when he painted light. One important fact I know I have mentioned before was the way he limited his value scale- 1-5, rarely visiting a 7.
8, 9,or 10 were off limits. That's it. Simultaneous contrast...a 4 looks dark next to a 1.
While I may never be Mr. Gifford, I certainly can learn from him.
Tomorrow starts the big sale. I have been making the blog post for days. 31 paintings will be on sale. First time ever on line for me. Five PM eastern standard time....be there or be square;-)
PS Thank you Domi for taking the time to help me figure out the paypal tabs!
