A new painting on the easel in my studio today! I continue my obsession with atmosphere, light and lakes of the north. I wish I could hold onto the moments and feelings. Painting is the only way I know.
I often think of myself as a painter of psychological landscapes. As much as I hate to label myself this is a description I have found suits my enthusiasms and interests. Painting is only worthwhile if it is in pursuit of some larger meaning, that is what keeps me digging.
Simplification and abstraction, concepts I play with to varying degrees in my work. This little painting is all about the feel of light.
