Ridge Top

Ridge Top

A couple of years ago I felt the impulse to challenge myself by painting again and began doing small landscapes and still lifes. I soon discovered the daily painting movement where artists produce a small painting each day and post it on their website. While I never attempted to create seven paintings a week I did benefit from the discipline of painting on a frequent basis. By working small, I was able to take risks that I never would have taken with larger pieces. Likewise, it was easy to abandon a painting that just wasn’t working and move forward with a new one. My overarching goal has been to become a better craftsman without diminishing the poetry.

Ridge Top
I have done several versions of this ridge top in Vermont because I like its simple composition and the strength of its abstract design. Capturing atmospheric effects with loose and fluid brushstrokes was particulary important. For me, the piece balances between realism and abstraction, leaving much to the imagination while firmly grounding the scene in reality.
