“The vale of mood, the heavy leg of dark, the seeming essence of sound are my speechless friend.”
Color and light, the common denominator are a reference point for me. A simple palette of basic color and the challenge of painting on location have helped me create the mood and feeling in my images. It is the best teacher for me, when working outside in nature. It is a new ethic and approach to “seeing” for me and has helped me in the studio. I become more aware of the atmospheric aspect, the intangibles, when painting on location, as it shows up in studio work as well.
