Last Days of Summer - House Sparrows by Michael Dumas
  Last Days of Summer  (2009)
Subject: House Sparrows
Dimensions (inches): 3 x 6.5
Medium: Oil on prepared panel
Description: It seems to me that the light takes on a certain quality during the last days of summer, a somewhat harsher brilliance than before. Perhaps this is simply an impression generated by the drier, dusty, aspect of this time of year, but it is enough to influence my view of things and affect my painting. In 'The Last Days of Summer' it is the light that envelopes and reflects on and into objects that is the heart of the painting, and I emphasized this notion by the contrasting nearly black background. The deepest shadows lay only in the far recesses under the birds themselves, while everywhere else, objects give way to the influence of reflected light.
