Dimming the light

Dimming the Light, 30" by 30", oil on canvas

I find this picture to be quite interesting. It evokes a quiet intensity. And it's really strange because the matte surface of the paint (using Ad Reinhardt's technique of dissolving the paint to get rid of the glossy binder) absorbs the light. I think a work like this might contrast well with the cellophane works that I've been doing.
I wonder how low I can turn down the lights?
