Like paint…

off the end of a brush.

Energy and motion made visible-memories arrested in space.

Jackson Pollock

Sometimes it’s her office; other times her place of sanctuary. As we glided across the smooth surface it wasn’t the scenery enveloping this beautiful lake that caught my eye, it was the swirling of imagery through the water. There one moment and erased the next by a single sweep of the paddle.

Paint flowing off of the end of a brush onto a blue canvas.

I like to capture something different in a landscape. I look for those things that are fleeting and not repeatable, often imagining how many times a landscape has been photographed exactly the same way: same light, same settings, same perspective.

It’s almost always about the water…

  1. Hi Sheryl Matt Kerr here, it’s been awhile! But not really for me because I’ve been following and enjoying your blog for a long time now. I’ve even used your quotes a couple of times! I’m starting to paint, plein Aire type stuff, and I’ve always wanted to paint your photos. I just feel them and it would help me learn the paint and brush. I wouldn’t sell or show these, strictly in house practice. Would that be ok with you?

    I’m so happy for an excuse to reconnect with you! I hope you’re doing well and enjoying this summer. Thank you Sheryl! Matt

    1. Wonderful to hear from you Matt! I will give you a call. Are you familiar with Jean Haines? I feel like you might connect with her style of water colors, I found her inspiring! She has several books and there are some videos as well.
