kinda new paintings



I haven't really gone out painting in 10 days, busy and sick
I really really hate computers and digital images. I think if I am successful it is because I have gone my own way and have a real authentic experience with nature, and hopefully a unique voice. Not something I was taught at school, or picked up looking at any particular artist. Art and Nature is an emotional experience and it isn't easy. Technology takes away the emotional experience and rounds off the edges without realizing that the struggle and imperfections make the experience so powerful.
Looking at the land doesn't scream out for your attention and money, it just is.
I am fortunate to have chosen a path with my life that enables those emotional experiences, and I encourage everyone to do the same and I hope my paintings remind people to do so.

These are two more paintings of Brinkman Ridge Road
