Two Conversations
Two Conversations, oil on conversations, 36″h x 36″w (92cm x 92cm)

For the brief span of a few hours, on a single day in each year, the lanterns are lit on porches throughout the original campgrounds in Oak Bluffs, Martha’s Vineyard, in a tradition that has spanned a hundred years. The soft lighting on the porch contrast to the brighter lights inside, defining the different conversations being held. In the same space, at the same time, two worlds coexist, unaware of the other, yet held together by the light of the night.

There were a lot of challenges to create the effect of the soft lights diffusing as it reached the bottom of the canvas, where the figures are obscured in an enveloping darkness…yet their mood is light, in contrast to the brighter interior space where the conversation seems more urgent. Creating the two worlds were fun finally, after a two months of struggle, letting the painting tell me what it needed, when I couldn’t see it.¬† The Mayo home in Oak Bluffs is the setting for the painting, where they host and Illumination Night party each year.

Available as an original oil painting and as a limited edition giclee print on canvas, Image size 30″h x 30″w Canvas size 34″ x 34″ ($500)
