May 4 – June 25, 2017
In recent years I’ve enjoyed the challenge of painting en plein air with its dual rewards of being “in” the landscape I’m painting. This series began with the Rappahannock River. The more I painted it, the more I realized the sense of “pathway” a river inherently describes. And so I began to expand my series to include the notion of entrance and passage in other aspects of the landscape. These paintings explore different moods and times of year in the Virginia landscape, but each offers an invitation. Paths ignite our curiosity to explore what might be around the bend.
