I arrived in North Carolina in 2016 after a career teaching high school artists. We bought land that neighbored our daughter and her young family, and built a house with views of the field and woods that separate our homes. A path mowed through the field allows the kids to go back and forth. As soon as we completed building, I turned my attention to painting the view.
I was inspired every day by the effect of the changes of the season, weather, time of day, and the view of a swath of the sky. Each painting depicts a singular moment in the life of the field and surrounding area; in these moments, the color and light will never be repeated in just the same way. The scenes are always changing and compelling and for now I can’t get enough of it. The paintings are titled with the date and time of the particular moment, to give the viewer context. I’d like viewers to see the special qualities of this part of North Carolina, and perhaps appreciate the spectacular in the ordinary.
The paintings are done in oil, on stretched canvases that I build myself, with the image wrapped around the sides so no framing is necessary. Visit my website to see my latest work.
