Artist Statement
I am dedicated to a poetic realism in landscape painting. For me, that is the artistic union of an accurate depiction of a scene infused by my emotional response to the light and atmosphere on that landscape. Such a painting may or may not be of a precise location or moment in time, but it is always believable and true to place. I think this is in keeping with 19th Century American painter Asher Durand's idea that painting nature was "fraught with high and holy meaning" and the job of landscape artists is to reveal "the deep meaning of the real creation around and within us." Such a painting is probably most fully realized in the studio based on studies of light on land forms, atmosphere, clouds and sky in addition to highly detailed drawings of elements in that landscape, such as trees, rocks, and water. The success of the studio painting depends largely upon the value of the field sketches, and those sketches in turn require a deft ability to quickly identify, draw and paint key elements in the scene. As a painter who lives and primarily works in the South, I find myself constantly faced with the conundrum of needing to accurately draw elements of my surroundings while somehow simplifying the scene to include only what is essential to its true nature.
