Sun Strike
My painting focuses on the beauty of the lakes and skies near my home in Madison, Wisconsin. I live on the isthmus between Lake Monona and Lake Mendota, and I'm often drawn to their open waters to watch the ever-changing light and the interplay of sky and water. I'm inspired by the sense of space and the shifting moods of weather across the horizon. I'm also interested in rendering the varied forms of cloudscapes that are visible above the lakes and city streets. Skies have definite shape and structure, and yet they are delicate and transitory; trying to capture these contrasting qualities is a compelling challenge.
