Artist Statement

In the early nineteen hundreds a group of artists congregated to Cornish, New Hampshire and created what became known as a Cornish Colony. That is the area where I grew up shortly after the Colony disbanded. I like to think that artistic vibes were still floating around when I was a kid. At the age of six I saw a picture of a wooden puppet and his long nose seemed to stick out from his face. I wondered how that was done on a flat surface and I tried to do it myself. That was the beginning of my artistic career. When I was seven years old I spent a week visiting my favorite aunt and uncle. They bought me some coloring books and I talked them into trading them for drawing pads.

Our house was in the country and I became a part of the countryside. I loved the woods, the swamps, brooks and ponds, the stone wall fences, the undulating terrain with hills and valleys and distant bluish mountains, the snow, wildflowers, the wind and the rain, the cloud formations, the four seasons, the early spring peepers, birds and crickets chirping, buzzing bees and humming birds on flowers, and the swishing darting dragonflies. All of these things exist here in the New Hampshire countryside.

Painting has always been my favorite artistic involvement. Although I have painted in many styles over the years I didn't really devote serious concentrated time to landscape painting until after I retired from teaching. Everywhere I turn I find a potential painting and I want each painting to show some of the spirit that inspired me to do the painting in the first place. In a short period of time I can take dozens of pictures with my digital camera. I load the  pictures into my computer and organize and improve them with photo workshop. When the picture is the way I want it I sketch it out on the canvas and proceed with the challenging task of making it into a painting.

Biography

My life began in Windsor, Vermont and at the age of five my family moved across the Connecticut River over the famous Cornish/Windsor Bridge, to Cornish, New Hampshire. We settled in the area where the Cornish Colony of Artists thrived in the early nineteen hundreds. One of my favorite landscape painters, Willard Metcalf, was a member of that group of artists. Maxfield Parrish also lived and painted in that area for many years. The historic and beautifully renovated country home of the sculptor, Augustus Saint Gaudens, with many of the sculptor’s works, is also there and is visited by hundreds of art lovers every year.

After graduating from High School in Windsor, Vermont I enlisted in the United States Navy. The G.I. Bill helped me get through college at a small University in Bemidji, Minnesota.

I received a Bachelor’s Degree with a Major in Art and a Minor in English. I did graduate work in painting and pottery at Saint Cloud University and sculpture and drawing at summer workshops at the University of Minnesota.

I taught art for twenty five years and when I retired I set up a pottery in 1999 and did that for several years. During that time I continued to paint and in 2007 I stopped the pottery altogether and since then I have split my time between doing  landscape painting . Needless to say painting is my true passion. It is both challenging and rewarding.

 My wife and I now live in the beautiful countryside of North Sutton, New Hampshire among the wetlands and fiddleheads and all the other wonderful things that I mentioned in my artist’s statement.
