Weekly file: so luminous

Clint Jukkala, Hana, 12 x 18 inches, oil on canvas, 2012. Courtesy Fred Giampietro Gallery.
We had this artist's work shipped recently for a salon event, and when we opened the box, we literally said "ahhhhh!".  The light, colors, and texture of this small painting just glowed nestled there inside the bubble wrap and brown wrapping paper.  On the wall, the center of the canvas is luminous like carribean water, or sky...or both.
