A quiet commute to the Farmers’ Market last fall provides the inspiration for many oil paintings. Working with the mood created by foggy silhouettes as the sun just begins to break, I watch in awe as the scenery changes before me. The ultimate challenge of “en plain air” painting – capturing the look and feel of a fleeting moment and moreover communicating the emotion felt in that instant to the viewer. This is quintessentially what art is about. The highest level of communication.
It is this challenge I find compelling!
By the way – I do not suggest taking pictures while driving oneself. I thankfully had a driver (Thanks Honey!) while I documented the terrific views!
