Art + Nature

Its always exhilarating to discover an artwork that resonates with all your senses, then find that nature has a grander version of the same thing.

John Aston (b 1947), Dusk Light, oil on canvas. There is a timeless quality to Aston’s minimalist paintings, in which the visible world is a merely veil for the unseen reality. In this work, Axton sets the temporal qualities of light against the vast expanse of a darkening sky. The last sliver of sunlight at dusk seems to beckon us to drop all our cares and meditate.

Life imitates art and on a grand scale! This photo is taken on a flight over Russia at dusk.
