Early winter has it's unique beauty. This is a scene from Acadia, a park close to home. The intertwined branches seemed to frame the water and vegetation. Oil on Canvas, 24 x 36.
This painting kind of flowed out of my arm today. As artists we all get stuck at times. Nature never runs out of inspiration and I never get tired of painting nature.
- Through my paintings, I have become attentive to the splendid drama of my everyday world. How the wind can create a ripple in a pond, a flock of birds descending on a field, or how sunlight can illuminate the side of a building are small miracles that happen all around us. Instead of seeking out subject matter to paint, I simply pay attention to the nuances in my surroundings. My goal is to turn what may be considered mundane or ordinary into the sublime.
