I haven't written anything on my blog for a while, so I thought I would add my new work and talk a little about what inspired me. Since Christmas, I have been mostly in the studio working on a commission and trying to replenish my inventory.
"Out to Pasture" was a scene that moved me while I was at the Shaker village in Hancock, Ma earlier this year. Years ago I remember seeing a painting by David Curtis, who was one of my mentors growing up, and this painting stayed in my memory till this day. I remembered a sloping hill, a large tree with sheep under it. I wanted my painting to provoke the same feeling that I felt looking at that piece. I have a sloping hill with a majestic tree and cows leasurely dining on the grass. I like that the painting has a foreground and a distance. This was one of those days with perfect temperature and light. I hope you feel what I felt when you look at this painting.
