This series of paintings arose out of my love of spectral light, color and pigment.  

 Pigments selectively absorb and reflect different spectra of light.  Light hitting the surface of a painting is reflected back minus different wavelengths which produces the appearance of different colors.

Playing with slight variations, each painting is an exploration of how the spectrum creates a very subtle dance in the eye, as the varying wavelengths interact with the rods and cones.
