Jurors' statement regarding my painting: "We admired the subtlety in composition, tones and values. So too, the certainty in the paint application. The scene is wonderfully observed and the scene beautifully cropped. We liked that the brushwork was loose and free, yet done with control."
I couldn't describe my painting process better than those written words. Thank you.
Here are the four paintings I painted separately last winter at Maudsley State Park. Enduring cold toes are worth beautiful paintings. This winter, I am waiting for the perfect winter storm, so I can get out and engage with the elements.
