Illuminated Optimism

Michael Sweet's avatar Michael Sweet

Creativity emerges in our surroundings as the sky light transforms. For these moments, our perspectives alter and the world we know suddenly becomes profoundly different. This chalk pastel captures the contrast of energy that an approaching storm casts against the tranquility of the tidal marsh. A new radiant glow from the grass begins to ascend. In these moments, inspiration and imagination are reinvigorated.
