“In Unison” Landscape 1/ 2, Diptych

“This is a hot climate and colorful coast it’s a joy to live here. I love the expanse of the marshlands, the big cloud-scapes, the scenery is dramatic and I try to express that in my paintings. When you’re out painting in these isolated places it feels like you have the world to yourself. The subtle shifts of light can in a moment calm or energize the environment. The paintings on exhibition are color sensations, passionate responses, and magical experiences.” – CJK

Dancing in the Long Grass

40″ x 80″ | Diptych | Oil on Canvas | CJK

When working “en plein air” everything is done wet on wet and in one sitting – often referred to as – alla prima. Working fast to capture the information you need outdoors, before the bugs or heat get ya! In the studio more time can be given to some decision making! Hope you like this one. “Dancing in the Long Grass”! Which is only a notion in Florida, as you would only chance dancing in long grass if wearing protective snake boots…. LOL

Here are close up photos of each painting –

Fields of Green

This time of year the marshlands are just awash with color. I captured some great moments in some small studies, and it’s about having the confidence to make the same color harmonies and vibrations happen in large work. This painting was inspired by the small study “Mini Acid Marsh” | 5″ x 7″, I was drawn to the strong pallet and mark making it prompted me to work on “Fields of Green” 36″ x 48″ canvas.  As for the big marks, pull out the extra-large pallet knife.

Rivers Flow

36″ x 36″ | Oil on Linen | When a painting flows it’s a joy and that feeling is to be enjoyed, as it is usually short lived as  the “struggle” phase crepes in.  The “struggle” is an essential part of the process, it insures I’m alert, ready to be critical, and with this comes growth in my painting.  The painting process is hard to gauge, sometimes a plan comes together and sometimes it takes a bit of working out, and sometimes it takes you to a whole new place.  It takes a while before a paintings is ready to leave the studio. I have been playing with this painting over a few weeks, yet wanting it to appear spontaneous and fresh, the key and what I like about this painting, are those wonderful big brush marks and the fact that it doesn’t look overworked with small timid strokes.
