The Event by John Davis Held
Pastel on Panel
20 x 16 in.

Lightning. The ocean. A hot summer night! The purple light in the waves that were breaking at our feet.

As an artist, I am not trying to solve a mystery, but rather probe this extraordinary and sacred mystery from different vantage points to confirm that it is there.

The Event, like much of my work in oil and pastel, does just that. I don’t have the answers, but I know that I touched on them with this piece.

There are colors one only sees in Bermuda at sunset. My wife and I were fortunate to see this incredible lightning storm – which is the inspiration for this artwork.

Where and When
The Event is available at the Gallery D’May in the beautiful town of Cape May, New Jersey, along with several large and small works in oil and pastel. The frame on The Event is spectacular!
