Midnight on the Danube-Budapest (3)

Recently I traveled to Eastern Europe and embarked on a river journey up the Danube.  At midnight the lights up and down the river, with a brilliant full moon adding to the awesome display, reflected the symbol of the new day of freedom from oppression. But the underlying sadness of what had gone on before touched my heart. The ink blue darkness of the water is a reminder of that history.  This experience was the inspiration for the series, “Midnight on the Danube”.  The subject contrasts with the mood of “Offshore Sundown”, which is my homage to the California coastline.

“I was truly inspired four or five years ago by the IMAX movie, the Hubble 3D of nebulae and that inspiration surfaced in my Festivo offering. Creation is in the heavens. Focus is on the sun and light. The explosion of the newborn stars with all the colors and light gives the impression that the stars are celebrating.”
