   John is making ready for a significant solo exhibition on the Albrecht-Kemper Museum of Artwork titled, “Transcendence: Reality in Nature.” In the midst of writing in regards to the work for the exhibition catalog, he walks the reader by way of the 4 seasons and the inspiration and challenges they convey to the panorama painter.

   This week, we needed to share a few of his ideas and work about Winter with you.

   “In comparison with the flurry of frenetic portray within the fall, winter portray is way more evenly paced to the climate. If we get any days of higher thirty-degree climate, I usually head exterior to work. That is the time to make the most of the clear gentle and the naked structure of the panorama which is often obscured. What might seem to the informal observer as a stark and barren scene, usually holds visible treasures for the artist keen to increase themselves into it. That is what I’ve come to take pleasure in most in regards to the Midwestern panorama. It doesn’t entertain. It holds its charms carefully—not fairly hid—and requires curiosity, thought and energy to deliver them out. It’s a actual pleasure to find one thing stunning to color on a winter’s day.”

   “Portray open air is about making 1000’s of little comparisons, judgments and alterations as we paint. It’s as a lot an mental train as it’s bodily. The most important problem at all times is that this: the brightest white paint available on the market is greater than a thousand instances darker than daylight! How we navigate that huge gulf and convert what we see right into a plausible rendition of pure gentle is what takes a lot apply and ability. It’s the place the magic and energy of portray is born.”
