LANDSCAPES

I do my landscapes either on location or from drawings made on location. I have painted in Portugal, Italy, China, India, Brazil, Chile, Argentina, Nova Scotia, Guatemala, Mexico, Costa Rica, Panama, South Africa, anbd many locaitons in the U.S. They are a stylized interpretation of what I am observing as well as feeling. An amalgamation of a visual and emotional response to the landscape. I  use materials that don’t normally mix  - Oil paint and spray paint,  gouache with acrylic medium, powder pigments with a variety of mediums. I like the surprise surfaces that can result when materials resist each other. The dots that have started to emerge in my landscape to me are symbolic of energy unseen but felt - words thought but unspoken, magic that is in the dappled light and starry nights.
