PAINTING IN PROGRESS
Verticals complicate and prolong the work process, but breathe excitement into a composition. Nothing but horizontals in Spring Thaw put me to sleep.
|Woodland Series; If a Tree Falls|
Complex landscapes both scare and intrigue me. I drive right past pastoral scenes with clear horizons; it's the gnarly scenes that make me pull out my camera. SpringThaw is a gnarly one--as is If a Tree Falls. Both finishes will not come quickly. A more relaxing portrait might give me something to break up the intensity.
