A long and VERY quiet afternoon in the Goat Rocks Wilderness gave me time to stare at shadows on the grass.  It was one of the highlights of my entire year.  This piece is finished with a gloss varnish. The painting is on masonite board and will need a frame for display.

Getting to Know Paul

Paul is a lifelong artist, though not always a practicing painter. The bulk of his professional career was spent in ceramics. Paul has now returned to his brushes. “It's been a circle for me. Painting was my first love,” says the artist. His current work is focused on highlighting the natural beauty of the surrounding world, and Paul finds inspiration in firsthand experiences, not photographs. When he goes for hikes or nature walks, he immerses himself in the environment–the sounds, the temperature, the smells, the weather–and translates these elements into a painting back in his studio. Paul’s delicate depiction of light, color, and reflection all contribute to the meditative quality of his landscapes.
