“Live in the sunshine, swim the sea, drink the wild air” a quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson is my inspiration to paint this curious and beautiful world. My paintings capture what we love about the land and sea around us. The cool deep woods, the vast ocean, and the open fields around New England are a refuge from the chaos of our lives. Being in nature brings us an escape, entertainment, and for some a source of income. The paintings in my show “Land, Sea and Sky” capture everyday moments that leave lasting impressions; lobsterman heading out to sea in the early morning, a curious calf in a patch of wildflowers, or a bank of orange clouds over the blue ocean. These are the moments worth remembering. When painting on location (en plein air) I notice the colors bouncing around my subject and see how nature creates a perfect color harmony. My larger studio paintings are informed by these smaller works.— D.P.
