   John is getting ready for a significant solo exhibition on the Albrecht-Kemper Museum of Artwork titled, “Transcendence: Fact in Nature.” In the middle of writing concerning the work for the exhibition catalog, he walks the reader via the 4 seasons and the inspiration and challenges they convey to the panorama painter.

   This week, we wished 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 typically head outdoors to work. That is the time to benefit from 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, typically holds visible treasures for the artist keen to increase themselves into it. That is what I’ve come to get pleasure from most concerning the Midwestern panorama. It doesn’t entertain. It holds its charms intently—not fairly hid—and requires curiosity, thought and energy to carry them out. It’s a actual pleasure to find one thing lovely to color on a winter’s day.”

   “Portray outside 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 largest problem all the time is that this: the brightest white paint in the marketplace 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 observe and ability. It’s the place the magic and energy of portray is born.”
