Leonard Mizerek, Fellow“Shimmering Light off Gloucester”Oil, 15” x 30”
This painting's title notes the main emphasis of this piece…the lighting. An open sky gave me an opportunity to create patterns of light and shadow which reflect throughout this piece. The overall colors are mostly complements of each other, bringing harmony to the painting. My recent focus has been on turn of the century harbor scenes. Since harbors such as Gloucester at that time were busy places, and the center of the fishing industry, they offer a great deal of material and interest.
