Nature Studies: Up Close and Far Away reflects observation of the natural environment. We see vistas and panoramas when we drive through the countryside, walk along a forest path, hike in the open air. We see details when we stop to look at closer range. Both perspectives are of interest to me.
The "far away" paintings are done from photos taken during my walks in Washington state. The landscape and climate are so different from what we are used to in Georgia. I wanted to paint my impressions of that area.
The "up close" paintings are done from photos taken during my walks in the neighborhood in Atlanta. I look down and see moss growing on stepping stones, stone walls, along curbs. When the view is up close, the perspective changes, as paintings they become like aerial landscapes.
These paintings are not about duplicating a photograph. The photo is a point of reference only. The aim is to capture the vision, the moment; and process it through a personal filter.
