“Snow Squall”, like all of my painting, just sort of emerged from the canvas. When I paint I don’t try to create a specific item or scene. The process of painting itself produces the subject matter. What I am beginning to realize more and more, however, is that I am for the most part a landscape artist. Regardless whether the final product is abstract or representational, the environment and many of its elements are present. Sometimes it’s the expanse of the sky – the light of the sun diffused by the clouds or the colors of the impending storm. Other times the composition emphasizes the endless variety of terrain and its relationship with the atmosphere. “Snow Squall” and others of my recent works reflect brief glimpses of my perspective of the world around us.
