Luminous Title

Sometimes painting can be an exercise in technique and a test of talent. Other times painting can be a romantic endeavor in capturing one’s muse. The journey can be as painful and joyful as falling in love.
In the Luminous series Schaller follows his muse blindly, as if she were a siren, just to see where she would lead him. Together they made wax billow like smoke; they found joy in subtle hues of white; they found color in the depths of darkness and in the end they saw the light illuminating all that is good.
