FOUR SEASONS . acrylic on canvas or paper
For the past twenty-five years living on the coast of Maine, painting the seasons has been central to my practice. While I consider myself part of the long line of artists who have found great inspiration in focusing on the seasons, I am not a plein air painter. I paint in my studio and not from photographs or sketches. My work results from hours of careful observation and absorption in the environment around me. My interest is in composing a synthesis of the visual sensations which have impressed themselves on my memory. I try to make paintings that are an encapsulation of the unique and specific energy of each season.
