The Paintings of Terry Leness

In the words of the artist Terry Leness:

My work is all about sunlight, the play of light on objects, the varying degrees of contrast between light and shadow, and deep, saturated color.  Long shadows cast by buildings, window reflections, and pockets of darkness under eaves and in doorways all capture my attention.

I am exploring more, however, than merely the play of light and shadow on architectural form.  I am drawn most often to older commercial buildings, early to mid 20th century bungalows squatting amidst tired or overgrown landscaping, dilapidated outbuildings and, everywhere, careworn campers, tottering on blocks, abandoned in fields or parked on the side of the road.  Each building, each camper, every eccentric landscaping scheme has a story to ponder.
