The date for the opening of my show of recent landscape paintings is fast approaching. Here's a little preview.
Two Red Barns, Bloomfield, New York
From the exhibition Statement:
My first visual influences were my daily surroundings, especially my mother’s garden in Bridgewater and my grandmother’s farm in Roxbury. When I began to paint seriously as a teenager, these were my first subjects. Following traditional training at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Art, I found myself drawn to painters whose work reminded me of those childhood surroundings. The American Impressionists were, and remain, an especially strong influence. Farms and gardens continue as a constant source of inspiration.
