Quiet Brook, White Mountains

"My paintings are executed from a combination of painting on site and working in the studio. Working outdoors, in contact with nature, I strive to document this process working directly from life. Within the studio, the perceptual process remains intact with the focus of it shifting to my relationship to the painting itself.Painting from both observation and away from the motif allows me to capture the nuances of observed form and light while simultaneously developing the paintings in a more improvisational way. The overall goal is to convey an experience of a place as well as a history of the search to create it." Brian Kiernan
