I paint rural landscapes with acrylic paint in a representational style.
The landscapes and the light of Missouri, Illinois, and Iowa are my continuing source of subject matter and revitalization.
The fields and structures, woods and skies, the changing light and the passing seasons create endless variety on the flat plains and rolling hills of the Midwest. The light is fleeting over buildings that weather slowly on land that endures forever. The wind whips or the air hangs over fields resting after harvest. The sun dries the autumn colors and the leaves drop to reveal the trees. The snow falls, the ground rests and light returns to the eastern sky.
Viewing the overlooked scene with a selective eye may reveal a glimpse of the essential just beneath the surface.
