"This is an acrylic diptych painted on canvas. I used a lot of cool colors to convey the time of day.

A twilight vista, a marriage of impressionism and abstract expressionism, and a world unto its own, Lois Gold’s "The Violet Hour" is deeply rooted in the earth and natural forms. A kaleidoscopic spectrum of soft cool colors fills the canvas with precision and coherence that speak volumes about Gold's skill as a painter. The sheer beauty of the composition balances out the intensity of the pigment application. It consumes you, lulls you into a state of tranquility, and sparks wonder at its depth and complexity. However, this complexity is belied by a comforting familiarity; the sense of organic life that shines out from the painting is so powerful and universally relatable that its impressive scale and stunning appearance can find a home in anyone’s heart.
