FROM BEHIND THE TREE, 2009
In March, 2009 I began painting landscapes of places I’ve visited. During travel I especially enjoy plein aire - there's something so liberating about setting up a modified studio in the woods or on a busy street corner. Initially, the idea of painting landscapes seemed lacking in creativity but this series is going to be the most concise body of work I’ve completed. It’s emotional, energetic and dramatic. Sweeps of green paint and lines of sienna fill the canvases – there’s nothing lacking in these paintings.
I expect to complete the series From Behind the Tree by the summer 2011.
