Yes, art is in the eye of the beholder. Miss Orr was my fourth grade teacher. I didn't know it them, but she had style.
I have a high school reunion (don't ask how many years!) coming up, and an old friend shared a photo from our 4th grade class. At the time, I was in my studio thinking about some newer directions in the my most recent paintings. I have been focusing hard on the important of value in my oil and cold wax paintings. As anyone who follows my art will know, I love color. It always comes through in my work. Value refers to the relative light or darkness of a color. Every color has a value and it can be adjusted when mixing colors. I was thinking about the importance of having a primary or dominant value in a painting and then using hints of contrasting values to make a strong visual image. It was at that moment that I saw the photo of Miss Orr (as I knew her back in 4th grade, she has been Mrs. Sally Bokal for quite some time ;) Her dress in the photo is a dominant light value with highlights of a darker contrasting value. The fact that the dress is white with black serves as a reminder that color itself may be secondary to the value. That is, this dress would work even if it were light yellow with highlights of a contrasting dark purple. It is the value structure that makes the design work. That's my thought for the day....Miss Orr had style.
