I paint traditional, rural things because they speak to me, and I feel a responsibility to translate. Iím drawn to subjects that depict manís interaction with, and on the land. Specifically, I like landscapes, historical farming scenes, tallgrass prairie and prairie wildlife. Using that simplified definition, I might be considered a regionalist.
My style of painting is representational, which simply means that the work depicts something easily recognized by most people. I also like a style called impressionism (visible brush strokes in an open composition with an emphasis on accurate depiction of light; mostly ordinary subject matter and includes movement and visual angles.) so I like to add aspects of that style to my work too.
Each artist has a unique style. I like earth colors: sienna, umbers and ochres so I tend to use them more. Iím not an artist who strives for realism, so in many of my paintings, I like to let the under painting of earth colors show through in the finished piece.
