Umbra (new title)

April 25, 2018

Okay.  While creating this painting I have been debating about the title.  At first it was Yellow/Shade, but that was not working.  Then, Yellow/Umbra, and that too didn't work for me. So now the new title is Umbra.  I think this works.  Titles for my paintings can be an agonizing process.  Usually a title or a sense of a title germinates as a painting is created.  

 

Even though Umbra has a yellow cast to it, for me, it is full of shadows. The color yellow does not suggest shadow, quite the opposite; but for me, Umbra has an underside or interior that is cast in darkness.
