Atmospheric landscapes: I am amazed by the colours and the feel of landscapes, and the memories and emotions that they evoke in all of us. If I can manage to capture some of this and pass it on to the viewer, then I have managed to share something of myself with a stranger who is also touched by a similar memory. My landscapes are inspired by the area where I live – Oro Medonte, as well as by areas where I have previously lived. I try to capture fleeting moments of light, shadow and colours on canvas.
BY ROBERT FROST
When I see birches bend to left and right
Across the lines of straighter darker trees,
I like to think some boy's been swinging them.
But swinging doesn't bend them down to stay
As ice-storms do. Often you must have seen them
Loaded with ice a sunny winter morning
After a rain. They click upon themselves
As the breeze rises, and turn many-colored
As the stir cracks and crazes their enamel.
Soon the sun's warmth makes them shed crystal shells
Shattering and avalanching on the snow-crust—
Such heaps of broken glass to sweep away
You'd think the inner dome of heaven had fallen.
