A Touchable Light: Henry Isaacs

20 Jun

As I may have mentioned, my hubby and I are renting a little apartment on a lake here in Northern Idaho for the next few months.  We’ve taken a few meals down to the water, eating and drinking wine on the dock, waiting for that bewitching hour when the light begins to turn.  New England artist Henry Isaacs’ work captures the magical pink light of dusk and the abstract beauty to be found in every landscape.

Isaacs’ work beautifully captures the simplicity of form to be found in our surroundings and how when the light changes color, so too, does the landscape take on a new hue.

In the brightest warmth of day, yellows dominate, then, as the sun softens the colors slowly fade and the light becomes softer.

    Thank you so much for sharing Henry’s work….I LOVE it!!! Absolutely gorgeous. I was inspired and painted an oil last night in honor of my recently passed cousin. It is a gift to have been exposed to his work. You can check out my latest painting on my blog…I will have it up in about an hour. Thanks again Lesley;)

      How wonderful that Henry’s work had such a profound effect.. The painting in honor of your cousin is a beautiful tribute to him. It is always so difficult when a loved one leaves us unexpectedly.
