Painted Skies: Scott Naismith

There is something so magical about the way the skies color with the beginning and end of each day.  It’s almost like a painted message– there is new joy and hope in a new day or take heart, this day is done, a new one comes in the morning.  In his work, Scottish painter Scott Naismith explores the brilliance of those colored skies and the effects of light and color in the atmosphere.

Through the refraction and reflection of light, we are treated to skies filled with glorious color.  What happens within the atmosphere and how our eyes perceive it is completely explicable, scientifically, but what about our emotional reaction to such a sight?  How do we explain the warm glow within that light and those colors bring?  Maybe we don’t have to.  Let’s just enjoy the gift.
