WHITE CURTAINS by Nancy Herman

6 x 8"
oil on canvas board

"White is the color of Fresh milk and snow. It contains all the wavelengths of visible light without absorption, has maximum brightness, and does not have any hue. It is the opposite of black.
According to surveys in Europe and the United States, white is the color most often associated with innocence, perfection, the good, honesty, cleanliness, the beginning, the new, neutrality, lightness, and exactitude."
This is a painting of the sheer and linen curtains that create a soothing light in my bedroom.

So many interesting and varied shades of "white!" This was quite a challenge and very well executed.

Very restful and pleasing to the eye, Nancy.
