Nature with some Abstraction

Watercolor - Landscapes

Unspoiled natural environments, particularly in California where I make my home, evoke emotions of awe and wonder. It is this emotion that I aspire to capture in my paintings. Whether viewed at the microscopic level or in grand vistas, nature is gloriously diverse and overwhelmingly rich in content. As an artist I try to select one compelling visual sensation from a scene. Sometimes I depart from reality and recompose or simplify by abstracting various aspects. However, even in the most abstract paintings I maintain hints of reality to ground the work.
I use artistic license to amplify some elements of the subject to better communicate the essential emotion. Examples are exaggerated colors, powerful contrasts, unique perspectives to create interest, and diverse textures. My intent is to convey an emotion to be shared by the viewer. If a viewer experiences an emotional excitement, and sustained interest, I have achieved a measure of success.

I love your dreamy landscapes. Very soft and beautiful. I would love to see Northern California one day and hopefully soon. I plan to start taking more trips into wilderness areas soon. There are a lot of beautiful mountains where I live too though. We have the largest canyon east of the Mississippi River.
