Lake and Sky Paintings
Here are three recent paintings of the sky over water, part of a series I’m working on.
I heard recently that vertical paintings reference the figure or portrait, even if the subject is landscape. That applies to these three paintings, each 16 inches wide by 40 inches tall. There is an interesting mental twist that happens while painting. The subject (for me often plants, water, and sky) draws me out of myself, and then reflects me back to myself. I explore the nature that surrounds me, in an expression of my own inner nature. I’ve had a similar experience when connecting with another artist’s work. That resonance says something about the artwork and something about the viewer, who is connecting with it.
While I work on this new website, and I’m trying to decide whether to link my current blog to it, start a new blog here, or both. Anyone have suggestions for me? Ideally I’d keep the original one going here. I’m looking into the logistics. I want to keep things simple.
I hope you are all well. It’s spring again! Plants are coming up.
