Sunburst, No. 1

395.00

I began my college education as a music major. Then I encountered "ear training" in music theory, where one is expected to transcribe piano scores by ear, and it was Game Over for my music studies. I mean, like, who does that besides prodigies? And, no, I'm not bitter.

Anyways, the parallels between what I do today as a visual artist and my past background in music remain. There was an old saying among musicians that the hardest thing to do well is to play something softly (the corollary to this is that any dingbat can play loudly).

I believe that the artistic equivalent to "playing softly" is a simplified composition.

In this new series, which I'm calling Sunburst, I'm jumping into an exploration of fall foliage. Gorgeous autumn landscapes have played a prominent role throughout my career as a painter since my time based in central Pennsylvania. Late last fall, after most leaves had fallen from the hardwood trees, I decided to dive into this new body of work.

This debut piece is a celebration of color, texture, and simplicity. I sourced this starring leaf from our backyard in Pennsylvania. I'm playing softly, and I know that those of you who appreciate this beautiful season will hear this loud and clear.
