Abstract: The subject matter for the paintings evolved in the spring of 1963. The general effect of the light in the small gymnasium in Rosenthal and the specific shadows of the shrubbery outside the building excited me. I made several painstakingly detailed drawings mostly of the shadows but also of a phenomena of light that apparently no one else saw—the globes of light around the shadows. The tempera painting in this exhibition, "Golden Globes of Light," was the first complete expression of this theme. It was first drawn with a soft lead pencil and then tinted with the polymer tempera colors used sparingly with much polymer medium and water.
