Web | Landscape Paintings
My landscapes are painted plein air --
outside, direct, under the full impress of the elements. Some days
its folly, some days its pure bliss.
Each painting requires a few days of direct painting before I have
enough of the "place" captured. I paint for about two
hours at a site and return at the same time each day. If the light
changes greatly from the day before, I wait.
All of the landscape paintings are done
in acrylics on linen canvas. Later the paintings are completed in
the studio from memory and sketches.
Each painting is a journey into the unknown,
a departure from safety into the expression of what I am experiencing.
In short, a risk.
landscape is a collusion of mind
and eye creatively blending two
perceptual realities into a
personal sense of place.”
