Happy Autumnal Equinox and Birthday to Auseklis Ozols!
The Autumnal Equinox marks the birthday of our Collection President, Auseklis Ozols. Ozols is best known for his dedication to preserving, teaching, and practicing observation based painting techniques associated with American Realism.
Ozols shares his birthday with the first official day of Autumn, a rare moment with equal lengths of night and day. We can see a balance of these symbols through his use of composition, light, and subject matter. There is much to consider in this painting-and careful analysis is coming ! For now, let us just express our deepest gratitude for all that AO has shared, created, contributed and taught to so many. Happy Birthday !!
This painting can symbolize many things. The sharing of knowledge, kindness, and truth is one of them.
