“NOVEMBER MEDITATION”

“NOVEMBER MEDITATION”
18 x 24″ Oil on Panel
Additional Info about this painting

Looking back on the many works I’ve created in my lifetime as an artist, I notice that the recurring theme of Nature’s beauty pervades a lot of my work. If my portfolio of works were to be laid out as a city road map, Main Street would represent the subject of “Landscapes” and there would be many intersecting side streets representing a variety of different subject matter I’ve drawn or painted such as people, inanimate objects and even an animal or two. But somehow I always return to Main Street to revisit landscapes, perhaps because it is a subject that is everchanging and one that I will never completely explore.  As a painter, it also gives me the most joy and serenity, which I hope is felt by those who view my work.



“November Meditation” is my latest addition to my extensive portfolio of landscape paintings, and will be included in the following upcoming exhibit:

CAPTURING THE MAGIC


I have a massive amount of reference I use as inspiration for my paintings. But it’s very rare that I take a photo that I feel is worth painting in its entirety ~ I personally don’t see the point in just reproducing verbatim, what my lens has already captured. And even rarer, is a photo that is so perfectly composed and void of the extraneous distractions that “clutter” the landscape.

But this painting is an exception to my rule. Aside from using artistic license to make a few minor changes, this painting almost seems to be painting itself.  From the vantage point of my studio on the hill, I captured a magical moment in October when the sun was setting while illuminating a full moon on the rise. Given the majesty of the scene, I chose 18 x 44 as the size for this painting. When it is finished and if all goes well, I’m hoping I will at least come close to successfully re-creating Mother Nature’s beautiful gift.
