I work outdoors in oils on hand-made paper. This portable approach dates back to the beginnings of landscape painting in Europe and America. Artists like Corot went to Italy to capture it’s light, and Hudson River School painters went west to record the shape of the continent using this method. This was a traditional way to study from “Nature”. In this spirit, I’ve been painting in remote natural areas – on protected and/or public lands in America’s western deserts and mountains. In places which are now threatened by population pressures and by the new political regime. The group of paintings in this show is primarily from the Bears Ears region of Utah, Owen’s Valley east of the Sierra Nevadas in California, and part of western Nevada.
