I work hard at simplification, often painting a subject over many times in an effort to get the essence and avoid overworking the painting.
As for style, it is a blend between impressionism and realism with more leaning toward realism than the other, using transparent watercolors of high quality on Losin’s Moldau paper with its fine linen content weave.
Evolution of my work has been just the normal progression of development of technique and awareness of pigment behavior that comes with 70 years of painting (My aunt started me very young.)
I have pretty much but not completely focused on Northern Wisconsin and its people. I often violate that and venture over the border into the Upper Peninsula of Michigan for subjects and down to Galena, Illinois, my birthplace, because of its unique architecture.
