A wondering mind isn't just a distraction!
This painting is entitled "Ode to Monet" approx. 30 X 24 inches’oil of canvas, the paint strokes on this landscape scene arestylistically loose, a blend of impressionism with some sprinkled abstraction. Inspired by the simplicity and serenity of the scene, there is no beginning no end, no right or wrong, no up or down, just beauty and awe!
I am an American that grew up in Paris, surrounded with beauty and grit, everything you see in France is an artistic expression! After a quarter century of traveling and working around Europe and the US, i finally settled in Napa Valley where the landscape, the people and the food reminds me of France. Perfect place to be inspired!
I am a self-taught painter, i love all mediums such as oil, pastel, acrylic, watercolor, charcoal, graphite etc... My favorite expression is impressionistic, i really love doing portraits and landscapes. Don't be surprise if sometimes i let my mind wonder, the result is very surrealistic and abstract, say what can't be said, and day dreams are expressed with each marks!.
