September 6 through November 10, 2019
Mirroring the surrounding landscape, these paintings of inland water
give us a feeling of escape and introspection.
Lakes and ponds capture fallen foliage and colors of the sky, while a
change in vantage point reveals a murky world of dark greens and
browns. Smoothly blended brush strokesand washes let us look into the
Retreating and overflowing creeks, rivers, and wetlands feed these
momentary visions in oil or acrylic; short streaks and dabs of paint
form the ripples and speckled colors of their dynamic surfaces.
Thick and thin paint application accentuates textures of grasses and
reeds contrasting with smooth wet surfaces. Tactile pleasure in the
mediums draw us close to the canvas and into these painted idylls.
