GOODWILL ART GUIDE — Painting Light


WINDOWS



A picture has a frame, just like a window. Paintings are often thought of as windows through which we are invited to look at a painted view of the world.
Of course, artists do not always paint what they see from their windows; but this is an easy subject to work on, and one that anyone can try. There is always a window to look through, and many people grow fond of their own particular view of a garden or a street.
If we were all looking out of the same window, each of us would see things differently. Some artists whose work is shown here have simply used a window as a starting-point. Others are expressing something seen in their imagination. Few of them have made an exact copy of the view — as would be shown in a photograph.
