Track lighting is also a very popular option due to the versatility of the lighting in that it can be moved and directed in various positions to create different focus points similar to down lighters with swivel heads. Installation of track lighting is relatively easy and will not normally incur high installation costs. The track consists of flexible cable which is strong and durable and it can be directed at many angles even though it cannot be curved. It can be installed across rooms or from room to room across ceilings and at various heights. It can also be installed vertically down pillars or walls or down stair cases. Light fittings are attached where you want them anywhere onto the track where they are needed to light up a work surface in the form of a spot light or with pendants above your breakfast area. If you have an open plan kitchen you may want to match the floor lamp in the adjacent area with your kitchen fitting.
I began to see that light was important in my work as an artist. If I sculpted the figure of a horse, it was important to me how light illuminated the three-dimensional object. When I painted, I discovered that light infused two-dimensional surfaces in two ways: one, when light and shadow using light colors and dark colors, was depicted and two, when by just using colors themselves I could transition for light to dark and depict light and shadow that way. Then all of the stuff from art history, the grids, the painting of light and shadow to depict space came up in my memory and I began to paint that way. The effects were amazing.
