Shadow is a color as light is,
but less brilliant;
light and shadow are only the relation of two tones.
-Paul Cezanne

(This was a study that I created during a still-life session for a class I was teaching.  The lesson being that the darkness behind the flowers is what makes them pop forward... we can't have the light without the darkness.)
