Opus 14

About Opus 14 group


This small set titled Opus 14 came as a result of being included in a book referencing my work, an historical romantic fiction novel titled "Heat of the Moment" by Olga Bicos. It was nice my work becoming an inspiration for a scene in this book. So I used that as an inspiration to create this very small series titled Opus #14. Often I use elements from music in my titles and music is important when I am working on my paintings.

"At night there were no lights inside the museum. Certainly not in the gallery, where the paintings waited for morning.

"But tonight a small red light blinked in the dark, casting a soft glow through the canvas of an enormous painting called Opus No. 14, looking as if the light itself had become part of the painting."
