Mojave: 7:28PM, Departure

Mojave: 7:28pm, Departure is the prototype artwork for the entire Solar Series...

It explores the light, color and temperature of the Sun's radiation in relation to the Earth's absorption at a specific time of day. Here we see a vibrant orange/purple sunset at the 7:28 pm moment of departure. After finishing this work, it begged me for a larger explanation. I needed to take the concept into a 24 hour period with each panel representing a two hour window. This led into Solar Harvest, Pulse!, Oscillations, and Spectrum paintings.
