Land and water and sky form the basis for our experience on the Earth. Over the past three-plus decades, I’ve been painting more or less abstractly in encaustic and collage. And all this time, even since the mid-70s, I’ve also been painting landscapes in oil paints from observation, en plein air.
For this show, we’ve chosen plein air paintings done on the Oregon coast and two from Puget Sound. Most are fairly recent. One painting is from 2001: I had read a book about Monet’s method of painting on the edge of moment-by-moment seeing. To try this out, I rented a shack of a cabin in Oceanside and painted every day from the porch while a storm raged.
