| Summer by the Shore, oil on canvas, 40 x 40 inches|
Sorelle Gallery, New Canaan, CT
Patterns are intriguing and helpful when painting flat landscapes. I was first attracted to the shape of the summer clouds but once that red-purple band was painted in, the rest of the oil became a playground of pooling water, strips on land and vegetation.
Everything merged together, unifying the painting and creating interesting things to see in every part.
