Artist Statement:
For several years I have worked from landscape;but it is not simply description which is my ambition; but a free interpretation of the motif. A major component of this work is the excitement which comes from direct confrontation of nature -- the light; the weather; the season; the time of day. The works in this exhibition were done in the south of France; during the months of July and August; primarily in watercolor. These works are done differently from my usual method; in that they are on large papers and are not meant as studies for oil paintings; but as finished paintings.
