Conversation with the artist at 5:30pm
The motifs for my paintings mostly come from the landscape I can experience on a continuous basis and the place I have taken much inspiration from recently is a walking path by the creek in my village. You enter this path through a break in the trees just off the main road and as you step in you find yourself descending into a light and shade dappled, textured world populated by many tall trees. The village is removed enough that you feel you are in a world apart from the everyday. The ground is uneven and slopes down on the left toward the creek, which meanders closer and farther and again closer to the path until you are alongside of it. The light and wind dance all around you. Birdcalls give a sense of being in an aviary, while the sound of the creek is almost always present. Progress on the path is linear with trees shading your way and keeping time for you as you walk along. The seasons, weather and time of day create varying moods.
Landscape is a multisensory, multidimensional experience for me and this path has provided me with a rich set of sensory details to work with in forming a visual expression that has the quality of a lyrical composition. The patterns and repetitive character of music is analogous to what I like to do in painting; compose the shapes and colors in a way that emphasizes the rhythm and movement that I experience in nature.
