About The Artwork

The rural farm is a sight to treasure for it's connection to nature and peaceful energy. In this 16" x 20" oil painting, a sense of quiet strength was the inspiration and attraction within this landscape. In the painting, the horizon beautifully anchors an expansive, simple farmstead with buildings in pastel hues reflecting the light of day. The golden pasture and green field studded with random grasses are symbols of natures artistry and sprawling presence. A light blue sky above is streaked with pinks, yellows and white sprawling clouds that float across the land. More intimate details of the farms character are found in hints of a split rail fence and trees along the perimeter. And what would a farm scene be without the traditional silo as a symbol of the fields harvest. The painting is derived from reality and some memories of driving through the Amish countryside with fellow artists when I was in college many years ago studying art. I created this painting on a masonite board, in oils. This is a signed original that is ready for framing.

ARTISTS STATEMENT: I observe, and participate in, the change of hues. I stand alone in a perspective—influenced by the roads and detours that I’ve chosen. The subjects I interpret on canvas dance with tradition, but underneath exists an individual search for freedom. As a creator, I’ve always been interested in working with color. I see my life as having a palette of its own and I seek to have the chroma of my experiences come through in my paintings. Over time, I’ve realized the only way to achieve this goal is to risk exposure—to unveil my simplified forms to the viewer. Whether the forms operate within the context of landscape or still life, the resulting narrative is always a story of merit, regardless of public perception or understanding. BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION: I was born in Vancouver, BC in 1958 and then moved to California which is where my parents originally met. I lived there until I was 6 when my family moved across the US to New Jersey for my father's work. I grew up in a creative family and pursued art in college only to leave it upon graduation, dabbling with it over the years that followed. In 2010 I returned to painting on a more committed basis. This was spawned by some significant life changes and painting became my respite. I still reside in New Jersey and as an artist I appreciate the proximity to both Philadelphia and New York City. I've been showing my work since 2011 and continue to do so.
