This is the most impressionistic of all Glenda’s recent paintings, not only in style and color, but also in motivation. Here she was exploring the richness of life and color through an even larger expanse of sensory stimulation. Through the use of multiple perspectives she develops order that transcends chaos, and yet brings every impression vividly into focus.
This painting evokes the tender and also vulnerable passage of winter into spring. It is ripe with innocent beauty, and still lurking in the background are the cold shadows of winter. This painting is a kind of rite of passage, and also an acknowledgement that within our own hearts spring returns eternally no matter what dark or challenging times life has carried us through.
The painting’s execution and color is masterful, and the style is the kind of scintillating life celebration we associate with Glenda. As if this were not enough, there is a great deal more going on than meets the eye. Although each of these paintings seems to be the result of natural perception and careful rendition, none of them would be possible without conscious and deliberate integration from a consciousness that knows how we see and where “seeing” comes from. Each composition is built around at least 5 perspectives, which emulates the spectrum of multi-peripheral vision. What this accomplishes, is that it stimulates the mind into admitting its active and major role in orchestrating all our perceptions.
