Summoning

Jeanne Shannon

The Artist Longs to Emulate Wolf Kahn


to capture the way light coalesces around form

to paint canvases that glow like living jewels

 



fuchsia ink of forests

orange skies afire behind an aspen grove

mauve air of pine woods

 


to record the green song of photosynthesis

the vibrato of yellow skies (a yellow like Van Gogh’s)

 


to capture fog, haze, harsh winter light

to render old barns with agitated brushwork

to balance sensuous light with stark geometry
